Don't Lose The Plot

One of my favourite songs is by the Newsboys and comes from their absolutely CLASSIC album, Take Me To Your Leader. Easter is drawing near and I'd like you to take a Selah moment and remember why on earth we are still here, and why Jesus was sent by God to redeem us. Now is not the time to grow weary in doing well. Don't get too comfy here on planet Earth...



Lost The Plot (click for audio)

When you come back again
Would you bring me something from the fridge?
Heard a rumour that the end is near
But I just got comfortable here.
Sigh.
Let's be blunt.
I'm a little distracted.
What do you want?

Headaches and bad faith
Are all that I've got.
First I misplaced the ending
Then I lost the plot.

Out among the free-range sheep
While the big birds sharpen their claws.
For a time we stuck with the shepherd
But you wouldn't play Santa Claus.

Sigh.
Let's be blunt.
We're a little distracted.
What do you want?

Once we could follow,
Now we cannot.
You would not fit our image,
So we lost the plot.

Once we could hear you,
Now our senses are shot.
We've forgotten our first love.
We have lost the plot.

When I saw you for the first time
You were hanging with a thief
And I knew my hands were dirty,
And I dropped my gaze.
Then you said I was forgiven
And you welcomed me with laughter.
I was happy ever after.
I was counting the days
When you'd come back again.
We'll be waiting for you
When you comin' back again?
We'll be ready for you
Maybe we'll wake up when...
Maybe we'll wake up when
You come back again.

Lies.
Let's be blunt.
We're a little unfaithful.
What do you want?

Are you still listening?
'Cause we're obviously not
We've forgotten our first love
We have lost the plot.

And why are you still calling?
You forgave, we forgot.
We're such experts at stalling
That we've lost the plot.
Lost the plot

When you come back again
Would you bring me something from the fridge?
Heard a rumour that the end is near
But I just got comfortable here.

Please don't let this Easter pass without reverencing the King and what He has paid for FOR YOU. Acknowledge Him, seek Him, and obey Him. Be challenged and do something about it. God did not send His Son into the world to condem the world, but to save the world through Him.

"Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven." Matthew 7v21

 ---Pour entrer dans le royaume des cieux, il ne suffit pas de me dire: «Seigneur! Seigneur!» Il faut accomplir la volonté de mon Père céleste.
