Day 4: So Will I
Hillsong UNITED recently released a song simply titled So Will I. The intent of the song cannot be misunderstood – we are to worship God just as the rest of His creation does. More importantly, we are to love others, give of ourselves, and even surrender our lives to others just as God has done for us. Some of the lyrics throughout the song include:
If the stars were made to worship…so will I
If the mountains bow in reverence…so will I
If the oceans roar Your greatness…so will I
If the wind goes where You send it…so will I
If the rocks cry out in silence…so will I
If You gladly chose surrender…so will I
If You gave Your life to love them…so will I
God has created you to be His ambassador. He has created you to proclaim the greatness of His nature. He has created you to serve others. Encourage others. Love others. Empathize with others. And to be with others in the same way that He left heaven to be with us. As you read today, consider this: What would it look like to live life in such a way that others see and know that no matter what, you are for them and with them?
What would it look like to live life in such a way that others see and know that no matter what, you are for them and with them?
Do you find it difficult to see others in the same way God sees them? Why do you think that is?
Take action: Who is one person you sometimes distance yourself from? What is one thing you can do today to encourage them, perhaps letting them know you are for them and with them?

Reflect: What did you H.E.A.R. from God today? HEAR Bible Study Method
Heavenly Father, I confess that there are some people I have little to no desire to be with. Their attitude or foolish life decisions leave me frustrated and anxious, so being with them is a significant challenge. But today, I’m grateful for the reminder that You gladly chose to surrender for them. You openly gave your life to be with them. And because of who You are and all You have done, I commit to doing the same. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
