This song was also written while I was on staff at the church in Bethany. It’s pretty self explanatory. It speaks of a man who wasn’t willing to leave the life he knew. He thought he lived a good life and that was good enough. I have realized that the meaning of this song is so much deeper than I ever thought! I was then, writing about salvation as I understood it. Now, having a much clearer view of His salvation still to come, I realize that we must leave our lives, and walk in His ways today!
Its been awhile and you’re left waiting
for you tomorrow never comes
you had your chance but you said maybe
a better day will come along
At His feet you lay pleading
Lord just give me one more chance
You say you lived a life with meaning
There’s so much more to life than that
Well he had his chance
but he left it in the past
he went on to die that night
he lost everything to the thief in the night
We must choose this day who we will serve! Pleading with Him after it’s too late, will NOT work! He’s coming back with a sword to judge. His grace is abundant today so that when judgement comes, we will be found spotless! Turn to His ways and leave christianity behind! His ways are higher!
This song was written when I was on staff at a Christian Church in Bethany, OK. I would sing songs from the stage and the people out in the “audience” would just stand or sit with no emotion on their faces! I use to think to myself, “Why are they here?” I mean why would someone come to a place that, apparently by their actions, they would rather not be? This song is birthed out of a frustration of the lack of passion the church seemingly had for Yehovah. Mind you, at this time I did not know His truth, but He was leading me out of the system, and this song played a role in that move!
It’s a non-responsive generation
Playing Grace with a lack of faith
And taking part in what we do not know
Standing up with our faces shaken
as far away from the truth as faking
changing with the fashions of this day
I had NO CLUE what I was saying!
“Playing Grace with a lack of faith, and taking part in what we do not know”
WOW! That is exactly what the church is doing! Living lawless lives and using “grace” as an excuse!
“As far away from the truth as faking”
WOW AGAIN! This is where I was, and the church as a whole still is today! We were duped! Praise Yehovah that He is calling His children back to His house!
