977 You Ought to Seek God’s Approval

Chorus

For the sake of your fate,

you should seek God’s approval.

Since you acknowledge

that you are a member of the house of God,

you should bring unto God

peace of mind and satisfaction

for Him in all things.

Make your actions be principled

and conform to the truth.


Verse 1

If you can’t achieve this,

God will hate and reject you;

you’ll be spurned by every man.

Once you’re in this predicament,

then you cannot be counted

among the house of God,

and that’s what is meant by

not having God’s approval.


Chorus

For the sake of your fate,

you should seek God’s approval.

Since you acknowledge

that you are a member of the house of God,

you should bring unto God

peace of mind and satisfaction

for Him in all things.

Make your actions be principled

and conform to the truth.


Verse 2

All have deceived and resisted God.

Some misdeeds are forgivable,

some are not, for many deeds

violate His decrees

and offend God’s disposition.

God exhorts you to grasp

what His decrees consist of,

and try to know God’s disposition.


Bridge

If not, it will be hard to keep quiet.

You’ll speak too much high-sounding talk.

You’ll unwittingly offend the disposition of God,

fall into darkness, and lose the Spirit’s presence and light.


Verse 3

Since your deeds are unprincipled,

you do and say what you should not,

the retribution you get

will be what you deserve.

You might lack principle

in words and in deeds,

when in both of these things

God is highly principled.


Verse 4

You receive punishment

because you’ve offended God,

not a human being.

If you do many offenses

against God’s disposition,

you’ll be a child of hell.

So instead be honest,

and principled in actions.


Pre-chorus

Then you can become a confidant of God.


Chorus

For the sake of your fate,

you should seek God’s approval.

Since you acknowledge

that you are a member of the house of God,

you should bring unto God

peace of mind and satisfaction

for Him in all things.

Make your actions be principled

and conform to the truth.


Tag

If you don’t offend God’s disposition,

and if you seek His will,

and if your heart holds reverence toward God,

then your faith is up to par.
