723 The Criteria for Man’s Obedience to God

Verse 1

If you constantly make demands of God,

then it proves that you do not obey Him,

you are trying to make deals,

you are choosing your own thoughts,

and acting according to them.

This is betrayal and disobedience.

Making demands of God is senseless.

If you believe He is God,

you wouldn’t dare make demands.

You’re not qualified, whatever the reason.


Pre-chorus

If you have true belief in God

and believe that He is God,

you’ll have no choice but to worship and obey.


Chorus

When working out whether people

can submit themselves to God,

see if they want something excessive

that they expect from God,

if there are any other motives

that should be taken into account.


Verse 2

Not only do people have a choice today,

but they impose their will on God.

They try to make God act

according to their own thoughts

when they should act in accordance with God’s.

They have no true belief in God,

nor the substance belief contains.

Belief and obedience grow with fewer demands,

and your sense will become right.


Pre-chorus

If you have true belief in God

and believe that He is God,

you’ll have no choice but to worship and obey.


Chorus

When working out whether people

can submit themselves to God,

see if they want something excessive

that they expect from God,

if there are any other motives

that should be taken into account.


Bridge

When you’re able to truly obey,

you’ll follow God with one heart and one mind,

no matter if He uses you;

no matter whether you have status,

you’ll be able to expend for Him.

And only then will you possess the sense

and be someone who truly obeys God.


Chorus

When working out whether people

can submit themselves to God,

see if they want something excessive

that they expect from God,

if there are any other motives

that should be taken into account.
