This song is about being willing to obey Jesus Christ, to be his witness, to love others with his love, to know his power and working in our lives, and to be transformed into his likeness. As well, it is a prayer and a call to the Holy Spirit of God to come in power, and to change our hearts within this hour in which we now live, so that we may be like Jesus always, and to be that light that shines in the darkness, so that others can come into the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I think we have probably all heard the saying, “God does not need our abilities, what he wants is our availability.” He doesn’t want what we think we should do for him. He wants our lives surrendered to him, our all on the altar, willing and ready to follow him wherever he leads us.
Willing / An Original Work / August 17, 2011
I am willing to obey You;
Have Your Spirit live within me;
Know Your power; be Your witness
To a world who needs You greatly.
Love within me spread to all men,
So that they might come to know Him;
Know His power; His forgiveness;
Be transformed into His likeness.
Holy Spirit, come in power,
Change our hearts within this hour.
May we be like Jesus always;
Be a light that shines in darkness.
