Lyric For The Day 28.10.12 from Be Still by The Killers

Brandon Flowers

Today’s Lyric For The Day comes from the Fitzroy Worship Service this morning when my creative colleague Jonathan Abernethy-Barkley led us off with this liturgy he had written based on Isaiah 58 which we had looked at in the TEAR Fund film Live58 last Sunday. He then
preached about how the journey of growing up in faith was not a yellow brick road but more like a car crash and how Church is a safe place for such a messy mystery of finding the fullness of Christ. Leading us through the first half of Ephesians 4 he spoke of living lives worthy of our calling and caused us to meditate on this Killers’ song Be Still along with the passage from Ephesians 4... Here are all three together. 

Call to Worship from Isaiah 58 (by Jonathan Abenethy- Barkley 

Leader: The kind of fasting I want is this: Remove the chains of oppression and the yoke of injustice, and let the oppressed go free

Response:      The calling to which we are called

Leader:Share your food with the hungry and open your homes to the homeless poor

Response:      The calling to which we are called

Leader: Give clothes to those who have nothing to wear, and do not refuse to help your own relatives.

Response: The calling to which we are called 

Leader:  Then my favour will shine on you like the morning sun

All:   The calling to which we are called 

The Killers yet again hit the nail on the head of Ephesians 4 The Calling To Which We Are Called ...

“Close your eyes,

Soon enough you’ll be on your own,

Steady and straight,

And if they drag you through the mud,

It doesn’t change what’s in your blood,

When they knock you down,

Don’t break character,

You’ve got a lot of heart,

Is this real or just a dream?

Be still,

Rise up like the sun

and labor till the work is done”

Paul in Ephesians 4

4 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all...

...
speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the head, that is, Christ.
16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament,
grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.
