Charles Wesley was the brother of John Wesley, the Englishman credited with founding Methodism when he established a church in Savannah, Georgia. Charles was said to have penned over 6000 hymns, one of which is well known as “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today,” written in 1739. On Easter, the nine letters that start the fourth verse captured me with, “Soar we now.” Often, on the softball field, in a classroom, at a job site, or in a church, we see listless flying or gliding, but do not see enough soaring. In a world of apathy and going through the motions, when many in the human race are satisfied with doing okay, we need more people with flaming hearts (Olympic gymnast Mary Lou Retton’s term), people who will soar now instead of saying what they will do later and then never doing it. What about you? Are you going to drift or coast and expect others to provide for you? Why not ignite a flaming heart and “Soar YOU now!”
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31 NIV
