No Grey With Jesus: 'Doesn't Work Like That'
Matthew 6:24 No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
Revelation 3:15 ‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.
Joshua 24:15 Joshua says, “choose this day whom you will serve
This song really spoke to me today. I was brought to tears. Got to me as I think about many people I have known this year who are on the fence.
They want God but want to live a life of compromise. They want church, but want to have sex with their girlfriend for example.
My God, my God some of them have died in the last 12 months. At least four that I know.
For those living in compromise, living in sin, there's a real urgency right now. I am not saying this to condemn but WARN you. I feel this so much.
Please please PLEASE don't play church, please don't play games, please don't go to hell. Please.
Yeah I wrote this song
And I pray that you listen to all the words
Cause I feel like at some point in everybody's life
We feel like this
Lord, I'm split in two
Part of me loves the world
And the other loves You
So, what do I do
I wanna be saved
But I got to stay cool, too
And no I'm not a fool
I know eventually I'm gonna have to choose
And, really I don't wanna lose
My ticket into heaven
And a chance to be used by You
And if it's God that I'm after
I just can't serve two masters
And before something happens
I got to turn it all around
Because I know
I can't just have my cake and eat it too
Cause it's real easy to stay on the fence and still do you
And it'd be cool if we could love the Lord and still go do our thing
But see it doesn't work like that
You gotta to be white or black
See I've realized
When it comes to sin
You just don't compromise
It's a matter of death and life
Be weak and do wrong
Or be strong and do right
And I don't wanna keep going to church
Singing all about how much You're worth
And then continue doing my dirt
Living as if I didn't care if You're hurt
Lord I really need you to help me
Get it together
Saints, we really gotta
Get it together
No it don't work like that
You gotta be white or black
No shades of gray
Don't work like that
Lord help us, help me to get it together.
Father forgive me for living a double life. For wanting the benefits without the commitment without obedience. Have mercy on me I repent. I choose not to play church. Wash me in Your blood. Take complete control of my life that I might be hot and not luke warm, I choose to serve You and You only in Jesus' name amen.
