Home Teaching and Missionary Thoughts From Contemporary Christian Song

I was listening to the song Saving Grace by the Contemporary Christian sing group Point of Grace.

The song tells the story of a girl whose father left before she was born. Her mother named her Grace.  The girl ran away when she was fifteen.  It talks of how the girl doesn't see the point in going to church, so we have to be where she lives.  I don't think that just means going to her home, but there are many other parts of her life.  When we see her where she works whether that is where we work or where we buy groceries or where we get lunch.

The songs says "Being Jesus to those he came to save. Sharing life and giving our own away. It's all about serving God, all about saving Grace "  It goes on about showing who Jesus is.  Not telling, but showing.  Helping people who feel pain to feel His spirit and His love.

I have indicated that the subject of this post is missionary work and home teaching, but it is about living our life.  It is about receiving His image in our countenances.

Alma 5:14,19

  14 And now behold, I ask of you, my brethren of the church, have ye aspiritually been bborn of God? Have ye received his image in your countenances? Have ye experienced this mighty cchange in your hearts?
  19 I say unto you, can ye look up to God at that day with a pure heart and clean hands? I say unto you, can you look up, having theaimage of God engraven upon your countenances?
