CHORUS I’m not of this world, I can’t live life like everyone else I’m not of this world, Jesus loves me more; I won’t love Him less I’m not of this world, I’ve been bought with a price and now I know I am blessed I’m not of this world, I’m NOTW
FIRST VERSE I don’t know what you find interesting, but it’s anything you put interest in So put your interest in God and in His word and please don’t live in sin I know it really feels enticing, and when you do it it’s exciting But God wants to bless you and what sin does is hinder your blessing In Jesus Christ we’ve become a new being Christ the hero in our movie scene Once slaves to sin but now slaves to righteousness, Christ the King has made us His twin Once in darkness then came the light Jesus Christ, morning star so bright We are holy, unblameable and unreproveable in His sight Not by strength, nor power, nor might But by the Spirit of the Lord we fight Enemies want to see us fall, so we get down on our knees and we pray all night We’ve gotta be strong not slothful We fight by the spirit not kung fu And now, we live by what grace dictates, never justified by what’s lawful But it’s awful The way we turn our backs on the one who intended to save us Jesus showed His love, we must take that love show it to our neighbours Love so true, Love so real, Love so pure that labours Love that will change the world, The Love that has changed us
SECOND VERSE I don’t know what you find interesting The world’s curse or the Lord’s blessing But where your destiny goes, the Spirit knows while your flesh is guessing You’re a saint so watch your dressing It’s okay to laugh but watch your jesting Because the whole world is watching you, whispering *Oh, she’s a Christian* We don’t care what they say no more When they see proofs, they will say no more Reaching greater heights where we see no floors Now we are living by grace and we breed no laws Some people put on godly posters but they live life like Christ imposters Sold out to ungodly things, like 12 years a slave to ungodly things Please understand that you are not of this world, though we are under this flesh, we are not of this mud We’ve been redeemed, forgiven by His blood, new Optimus Primes transforming by His Word Wait! are we really believers Are we living a lifestyle or living religious I urge you give your life to Jesus Live for Christ and don’t live for pieces (CHORUS)
