237 Give Up Religious Conceptions to Follow God’s Footsteps

Verse 1

In your belief in God, pursue knowing Him

from His words and work now without fallacies.

If you want to know God, before all things else,

you should know of His work; this is the basis.


Pre-chorus 1

All fallacies that lack a pure acceptance

of the words that God speaks

are just man’s notions.

They are deviant and inaccurate.


Chorus

No matter how God worked before,

you must value God’s work today.

Then you’re someone who drops notions;

God you’re able to obey.

You can obey God’s work and words,

follow footsteps of God.

And in this you’ll be

someone who sincerely obeys God.


Verse 2

Religious figures take words God speaks today

and check them with God’s words they learned in the old days.

If you serve God of today but cling to what’s old,

your service will hinder; your practice, just ritual, old.


Pre-chorus 2

With religious notions,

one can’t follow steps of Holy Spirit’s work,

they fall behind step by step,

for those things make them self-righteous, arrogant.


Chorus

No matter how God worked before,

you must value God’s work today.

Then you’re someone who drops notions;

God you’re able to obey.

You can obey God’s work and words,

follow footsteps of God.

And in this you’ll be

someone who sincerely obeys God.


Verse 3

God does not pine for what He spoke, did before.

If old, God forsakes it. Your notions can’t you drop?

If you cling to old words God spoke in the past,

does this prove that you know the work that God does?


Pre-chorus 3

Holy Spirit’s new light if you can’t accept,

if you cling to the past,

you don’t follow God’s steps.

If that’s what you choose, then God you oppose.


Bridge

If man can just let go of religious concepts,

then his mind won’t measure today’s work, words God says.

Even though God’s work now is unlike the past ways,

you can put down old views, obey God’s work today.


Chorus

No matter how God worked before,

you must value God’s work today.

Then you’re someone who drops notions;

God you’re able to obey.

You can obey God’s work and words,

follow footsteps of God.

And in this you’ll be

someone who sincerely obeys God.

And in this you’ll be, and in this you’ll be

someone who sincerely obeys God.
