Ordinary People

from Ordinary People by Ian Peacock



I decided this should be the title track as it encapsulates much of my views of how typical Christians live. There are times when God does the miraculous; provides in some extraordinary way or heals an illness. But most of our Christian experience is in the small things, the way we try to show the love of Jesus in our mundane, every day tasks. We can make a difference because we have a different motivation and we empowered by The Spirit of God.


Verse 1:
Maybe we won't walk on water
Maybe we won't raise the dead
Maybe we will never answer
All the questions in our heads
We may never see revival
Or bring many souls to faith
There'll be days we almost crumble
From the struggles that we face

Pre Chorus 1:
But we can be a mouthpiece for justice, truth and hope
And lend an ear to someone struggling to cope
And we can shape a culture
A little at time
And show the love of Jesus wherever our front line

Ordinary people
Called to a mission
Walking with The Spirit
We make a difference
Ordinary people
Who are envisioned
Living by the Spirit,
All for the mission of God

Verse 2:
There are times we lack the courage
And the words to share our faith
We don't always act like Jesus
Tell the truth or speak with grace
Changed from one degree of glory
By the one who took our fall
Years go by and we may wonder
Have we changed that much at all?

Pre Chorus 2
But we can do the small things
as if they matter most
And work as though we're serving
the loving Lord of hosts
And we can keep on praying
to walk in step with him
And ask for his perspective,
the one who has no sin
