636 Have You Gained Chastisement and Judgment?

Chorus

Is what you pursue to be conquered

after chastisement and judgment,

or is it to be cleansed, protected and cared for

after chastisement and judgment?

Is your life a meaningful one,

or is it pointless without value?


Verse 1

Do you want the flesh or do you want the truth?

Do you wish for judgment or do you wish for comfort?

You’ve experienced much of God’s work, seen His holiness,

you’ve seen His righteousness, so how should you pursue?


Pre-chorus 1

How should you walk this path?

How should you show your love?

Has God’s judgment borne any fruit in you?


Chorus

Is what you pursue to be conquered

after chastisement and judgment,

or is it to be cleansed, protected and cared for

after chastisement and judgment?

Is your life a meaningful one,

or is it pointless without value?


Verse 2

Whether or not you know God’s chastisement and judgment

depends on how you live and how much you love God.

You say you love Him but live in your corrupt disposition.

You have no conscience and no fear of God.


Pre-chorus 2

Do such people love God?

Are such people loyal to God?

Do they accept His chastisement and judgment?


Chorus

Is what you pursue to be conquered

after chastisement and judgment,

or is it to be cleansed, protected and cared for

after chastisement and judgment?

Is your life a meaningful one,

or is it pointless without value?


Bridge

You say you love God and you believe in Him,

yet you don’t let go of your notions!

In what you say and what you do,

you don’t show your love of God,

you don’t show reverence for Him at all!

Is this someone who has gained chastisement and judgment?


Verse 3

Does this apply to someone like Peter?

Do they only have the knowledge but not the living out?

Did Peter only pray and not put truth into practice?

For whom is your pursuit? How should you be cleansed?


Verse 4

Is God’s chastisement and judgment of no benefit to man?

If man lives an easy life, how could he be cleansed?

If man wants change, how should he accept God’s perfection?

Which path should you choose today and follow till the end?


Chorus

Is what you pursue to be conquered

after chastisement and judgment,

or is it to be cleansed, protected and cared for

after chastisement and judgment?

Is your life a meaningful one,

or is it pointless without value?
