  These empty idols, self-made crowns
Gm    F         Dm       E♭

Oceans of Your justice, mercy like a stream
                Gm7                     E♭maj7
Heaven spilling over, flooding through our streets

Gm    F         Dm          E♭

  If every race and tribe belonged
Gm    F          Dm      E♭
  Imagine if we stood as one

  To see each other as daughters and as sons

Imagine if we laid it down

These empty idols, self-made crowns

Walked off the stage and lost our fame

Traded our slogans for You to have Your say

 

Imagine if we turned and prayed

Laid down our pride to seek Your face

And left behind our fear of man

Abandoned all these castles in the sand

 

God would You forgive us

Find us on our knees

Father come remind us

What Your Church could be

Oceans of Your justice

Mercy like a stream

Heaven spilling over

Flooding through our streets

God would You forgive us

God would You forgive us

 

Imagine if no lines were drawn

If every race and tribe belonged

Imagine if we stood as one

To see each other as daughters and as sons

 

God would You revive us

God would You revive us

Oh reach out Your hand and touch us

Oh reach out Your hand and awaken us

God would You revive us

God would You forgive us

Worth-ship

The word worship can be defined as “worth-ship”. In other words, the daily activity of my life, reveals the worth of the God that I serve. This is why it is so important to be a person of character when proclaiming to be a Christian. The world is watching us and they determine who God is by the actions of His followers. You are the representative of God on the earth. What do you want people to believe about Him? How much is His image worth to you?

The Consequence of Missing in Action

When we disengage from the battle, we find ourselves sitting behind computer screens looking at things we should not be looking at, dreaming of having someone else’s life instead of creating one for ourselves. When we become lazy with a remote control constantly in our hand, we grow numb to the fact that another spirit is running our houses.
