Covenant duties
I trust in the all-sufficient cross of Christ alone

Seeing and caring for people

To be somebody

Is caring for other people,

Seeing the needs of old friends

And people you never met before.

It is seeing people and giving them attention,

Discovering obvious needs

And acting to meet the secret ones.

It is touching people with your hands,

Praying for the blessing of God to come upon them,

When others would say they only need a doctor,

Knowing that love and care can do more the medicine.

 

To be somebody

Is identifying with the pain of strangers,

Pouring the healing love of God into their loneliness,

Refreshing them by simple care,

Relieving their hurts through the power of God,

Encouraging them by blessing them in the name of the Lord
