When we go with the flow

We tend to not question anything,

And believe what we are told to believe

Without examining everything.

When we go with the flow

Our thoughts may not belong to us,

As we’re influenced by others;

Our emotions or our lusts.

When we go with the flow

We may believe that all is well,

But it’s where deception breeds on ignorance

And disaster this can spell.

Going with the flow

Is a watered-down version indeed,

When we worship man’s opinion

And in his philosophies believe.

To go with the flow

Can be dangerous too,

Because unless we question and analyse

We’ll never discover truth.

If Jesus went with the flow

We would all be condemned,

With unspeakable consequences

And with strong delusions sent.

Because if Christ decided to appease

Every whim and every way,

We would never know salvation

With an eternal price to pay.

If Jesus went with the flow

He’d be denying reality,

Through compromise and emotional ways

Where only God’s wrath we all would see.

But Jesus was courageous;

He was bold with authority,

And challenged all the leaders

Exposing their hypocrisy.

But if He caved in under pressure

And was ultimately tempted,

There would be no hope for humanity

If to the Father He was not surrendered.

Dead fish go with the flow

But when we swim against the waves,

It’s by God’s strength and only by His grace

That His path for us He paves.

When God’s love and saving grace

Is embedded in our soul,

We thirst for Jesus’ ways

Where rivers of living water unfold.

Jesus went against the grain

That’s why He was crucified,

When the carnal ways of humanity

With the flow identified.
