Casting Crowns – If We Are The Body lyrics

It's crowded in worship today
As she slips in trying to fade into the faces
The girls teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
Farther than they know

But if we are the body
Why aren't His arms reaching?
Why aren't His hands healing?
Why aren't His words teaching?
And if we are the body
Why aren't His feet going?
Why is His love not showing them there is a way?
There is a way

A traveler is far away from home
He sheds his coat and quietly sinks into the back row
The weight of their judgmental glances
Tells him that his chances are better out on the road

But if we are the body
Why aren't His arms reaching?
Why aren't His hands healing?
Why aren't His words teaching?
And if we are the body
Why aren't His feet going?
Why is His love not showing them there is a way?
There is a way

Jesus paid much too high a price
For us to pick and choose who should come
And we are the body of Christ

But if we are the body
Why aren't His arms reaching?
Why aren't His hands healing?
Why aren't His words teaching?
And if we are the body
Why aren't His feet going?
Why is His love not showing them there is away?
There is a way

But if we are the body
Why aren't His arms reaching?
Why aren't His hands healing?
Why aren't His words teaching?
And if we are the body
Why aren't His feet going?
Why is His love not showing them there is a way
Jesus is the way

    This is so true. If we are the body then why aren't all these things that God comissioned us to being done? We are supposed to be the salt and light in a dark and lonely world and God is looking for people who aren't scared to go out into this world and tell them about Him. It grieves my heart sometimes to see so many people hurting in this world and them not want you to help them, I know it's hard to talk to people that don't want you to help them, but Jesus told us to do it so we have to do it "no matter what!" My prayer is that everybody that doesn't know Him will eventually come to know Him. He's Awesome!
