Nothing new beneath the sun...

Nowhere in the present
nowhere in the past
nowhere in the anytime
has such a stir amassed!
People are rebelling...
there is murder in the heart!
Look deep inside yourself, my friend,
decide what is YOUR part!

The days that are...
Are they any different from 2000 years ago?
Is Jesus Christ still being crucified?
He is either your friend or your enemy. There is no in-between.
The stir that He caused back then shook the world.
Is He shaking the world again, or is it still reeling from the time He spent in our midst?

"You affect the one we are
one life at a time.
You shake us to the very core
so far beneath the grime!
You go beyond persuasion,
race or even sex;
and there, upon the naked heart,
Your perfect love connects!
We need You at that level,
we need You everyday.
You need to show us what it means
to live the Narrow Way!
We need to dash our 'policies,'
to which we dearly cling,
and grasp the Truth that You've been speaking
through the ages' ring!

How long are we to wander?
The wilderness, it bites!
I must learn to submit to You
and stop demanding 'rights!'
For generations You have shown
the path that I must choose.
I must devour, Lord, Your Word
instead of evening news."

Rebellion. It's nothing new. It's not even appalling anymore, because every one of us has it in our own hearts.
What are you going to do about it?
What am I going to do about it?
What are we going to do about it...
