Life You Choose

You stand up in church You cry at the altar Say you're done living life your way But then you walk out into the world. Solid ground or sinking sand? You can't live to please both Jesus and the world Are you clinging to His hand? 'Cause every moment You believe Is all about the altar Whether you raise your hand or not Stand up and say you're done Givin' your life to Him But walking out on Him when you walk out the door. One personality with one friend Loving God and speaking His life Only with those who believe Then turning your back on Him And trying to fit in and please Those who surround you Forgetting completely about the God who formed you Because it's uncool to believe in a God you can't see Can't control. This world says you're your own God Live life your way do what you please But Jesus says come and follow me. So that's what you do You love Him in church Love Him with your "Christian friends" But Monday morning comes And you're a whole nother person. Here at the altar Tired of living your life But Thursday morning comes around And your life and identity you're trying to falter. Were those just empty words Just going through empty emotion Or did you mean it when you said you would follow Him? Leave everything behind and gain the greatest treasure One that will never fade away Or cling to the earth and its affections Only to wear yourself out and be disappointed with your reflection. Why are you at the altar? Here to worship the Author Or the story He's creating With the people in your life? Hot or cold In or out There's no in between. I promise it's worth it When you go His way Sell everything for Him He won't let you down. Solid ground or sinking sand? You can't live to please both Jesus and the world Are you clinging to His hand? 'Cause every moment You believe Is all about the altar Whether you raise your hand or not Stand up and say you're done Givin' your life to Him But walking out on Him when you walk out the door. Life is not about the altar But how you live your life because of it Not about standing up or raising your hand But will you go make a difference in this world? Who are you living to please?
