>You Shut Me Off

>You shut me off, and locked the door on me.
But I’ll be waiting outside when you leave.
All that I can say is what I’ve said a million times before.
Those words, those words will never change.
And I will sing and I will scream but I can’t make you hear me.
But I won’t stop cause there’s a chance you’ll start listening.
Do you hear the music play.
Do you see the tears on my face.
The volume is dying, and like a sweet song everything will end.
You’re caught up in rejecting the truth.
That you don’t see the danger around you.
All that I can say is what I’ve said a million times before.
Those words, those words will never change. – Kids In The Way “The End”

I have always loved this song. I would sing it as I was driving and all that jazz but I never really listened to the words. Today as I was listening to them it hit me, this is the way the truth I live should be. When I talk to someone about the truth, about Christ, I shouldn’t mention it and just leave it there. No matter what I will still be there offering you the truth. Whether it takes me 5 times to get you to realize the truth or 5000, I will be waiting outside when you leave.

Christians should want everyone in this world to experience the joy that they know and feel the love of God upon them. That doesn’t mean mentioning it. That means always living it. I believe that when Kids In The Way sing that song that they are not just talking about verbally speaking, but rather speaking to the world through our actions. Through our love.

I have one person in particular in my life that I love that has not accepted Christ as his savior and I pray for him constantly. This song is my battle cry. I want to challenge you Christians who read this to do the same thing. Never back down.
