Circumstantial Living

Are you caught up in a vicious circle that goes round and round
Knowing in you mind what’s right, but circumstance just brings you down?
Oh, you’ve tried it time again, but nothing stops the domino
Up and down and round and round … well, here is something you should know

Put off circumstantial living – don’t you know the truth?
Sin no longer is your master since you died with Christ and rose anew!

Living in this world, you say is accidental happenstance
Just to keep your head above it all will be your only chance
Did you ever stop and think that someone planned this long ago?
Could the consequence of life defeat the one who made it so?

Put off circumstantial living – don’t you know the truth?
Sin no longer is your master since you died with Christ and rose anew!

Random Shovelquote: Realize the freedom (view all shovelquotes)

How can you realize the freedom you have in Christ? I say that you will discover it, more times than not, in the midst of the bondage that still seems to hold you down. You see, the power of the gospel is not found merely in the words of its testimony of Jesus’ death and resurrection, it is found in the reality that has been brought about because of who he is and what he has done. That reality is that Christ is in you. He is there, and his life witnesses from within you … despite all the doubts that you think actually come from within you. source
