Track 6 or 7 says this:
“Just repent, turn from selfish motivation, so iniquity will not cause your demise.
He’ll make you a new heart and a new spirit – for why would He(Jesus) die? O Jerusalem, please tell me why! “I have no pleasure in the death and in the dying,” says the Lord God, “Therefore turn yourselves and live.” It’s not the talkers, but the walkers in His word, are the only ones to follow Him, if we care.
Looks a lot like Ezekiel 18:31-32(NIV) “Rid yourselves of all the offenses you have committed, and get a new heart and a new spirit. Why will you die, O house of Israel? For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent and live!”
And Ezekiel 33:11(NIV) “Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?’”
“Are you satisfied?” “Rebel” “Repent”
I’ve read the following passage a bunch, but the black and white nature of it hit me a little harder when Jenny’s dad read it yesterday (1 John 5:1-13NIV):
Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. We accept man’s testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son. Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart.
Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
