Would others truly want to go

to  your church when they see

how you always rush to judge,

slander, and condemn others?

 

Would others truly want to go

to your church when untrue

malicious, heart-breaking gossip,

is your demonic weapon of choice?

 

 

Would others want to go to your church

when they see the harsh reality of how

others, who call themselves Christians,

truly talk about each other behind closed

doors from day to day and week to week?

 

Would others want to go to your church

in seeing how you love like Jesus?

 

Would others want to go to your church

in seeing how lavishly you forgive?

 

Would others want to go to your church

in seeing how  graciously you encourage?

 

Would others want to go to your  church

in seeing your generous hospitality?

 

Would others want to go to your church

in seeing how you live moment by moment?

 

Would others want to go to your church

in seeing how much divine hope you give?

 

Rise up church. Rise up church.

Rise up to be like Jesus.

Rise up church. Rise up church.

Rise up to be like Jesus.
