547 Forsaking the Flesh Is Practicing the Truth

Verse 1

Since people began to believe in God,

they’ve harbored many mistaken intentions.

If you’re not putting the truth into practice,

you feel that all your intentions are correct,

but then if something should happen to you,

you’ll see that many of your intentions are wrong.


Pre-chorus

When God makes people perfect, He makes them realize

that many of their notions hinder their knowledge of God.


Chorus

When you recognize that your intentions are wrong,

if you put them aside, along with your notions,

bear witness and stand your ground in everything,

this will prove you’ve truly rebelled against the flesh,

against the flesh.


Verse 2

When you come to rebel against the flesh,

there’s an unavoidable battle within.

Satan will try and make people follow it,

uphold the notions and interests of the flesh,

but God’s words will enlighten and illuminate,

so whom will you follow: God or Satan?


Chorus

When you recognize that your intentions are wrong,

if you put them aside, along with your notions,

bear witness and stand your ground in everything,

this will prove you’ve truly rebelled against the flesh.


Verse 3

To deal with thoughts and notions not after God’s heart,

He asks people to put the truth into practice.

The Holy Spirit touches, enlightens them.

There is a battle behind all that occurs:

When the truth or the love of God is practiced,

there is a great battle that commences.


Bridge

In the depths of their hearts,

there’s a life-or-death fight,

although all may seem well with their flesh.

After this battle, after great reflection,

only then can the outcome be known.

This battle causes people suffering and refinement.

But if you stand on the side of God, you’ll satisfy Him.

Suffering can’t be avoided when you practice the truth.


Chorus

When you recognize that your intentions are wrong,

if you put them aside, along with your notions,

bear witness and stand your ground in everything,

this will prove you’ve truly rebelled against the flesh.

When you recognize that your intentions are wrong,

if you put them aside, along with your notions,

bear witness and stand your ground in everything,

this will prove you’ve truly rebelled against the flesh,

rebelled against the flesh.
