Young & Restless

They call themselves Young, Restless & Reformed
Touting their Christian liberties
 
Seemingly more concerned about their freedom to indulge
Than stumbling a weaker brother
 
Distracted by the pleasures of this world
Which are passing away
 
Unconcerned about their influence on those
Who already feel the pull of a self-indulgent, godless culture
 
Focused on the here and now
Vs. the by and by
 
Whatever happened to
Be holy as I am holy

Whatever happened to
Be sanctified

Whatever happened to
Deny thyself, pick up your cross daily and follow Me

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. – Titus 2:11-14
