542 Today’s Truth Is Given to Those Who Yearn and Seek It

Verse 1

You have gone through much of God’s work,

yet are not changed or cleansed.

You still live under Satan and don’t submit to God.

You are conquered but not made perfect.

You do not pursue life or knowledge of God’s work,

only seeking pleasures and comforts.

So, your disposition has not changed.

You haven’t regained the image

that God created man with.

You’re walking dead, without spirit.


Chorus

What God wants are people like Peter,

people who pursue being made perfect.

Today’s truth’s given to those who yearn and seek.

Salvation is granted to those wishing to be saved,

not meant just to be gained by you,

but so you’re gained by God.

You gain God so that God can gain you!


Verse 2

Those who don’t ever pursue attaining holiness,

who never pursue knowledge of matters in spirit,

not pursuing truth,

content to be conquered on the negative side,

incapable of living out,

showing forth the truth and becoming holy people,

these are the ones who have not been saved.


Chorus

What God wants are people like Peter,

people who pursue being made perfect.

Today’s truth’s given to those who yearn and seek.

Salvation is granted to those wishing to be saved,

not meant just to be gained by you,

but so you’re gained by God.

You gain God so that God can gain you!


Verse 3

Today, God has spoken all these words to you.

You have heard and should practice according to them.

When you can live them out,

through these words God will gain you.

At that time, you will have gained these words,

which is to say, you have gained supreme salvation.

Once you have been made clean, you’ll be a real human being.


Chorus

What God wants are people like Peter,

people who pursue being made perfect.

Today’s truth’s given to those who yearn and seek.

Salvation is granted to those wishing to be saved,

not meant just to be gained by you,

but so you’re gained by God.

You gain God so that God can gain you!
