Let Us Not Get Caught Up in the Pursuit of Worldly Gain

Some preach a message 
Of having your best life now
But do they speak of the true source
Of strength and power somehow

They tell us to focus on ourselves
To overcome and to win
But the Bible teaches something else
Of faith and grace within

For it is not of our own will
But of God's mercy and might
That we are made spiritually alive
And able to see the light

We cannot choose to follow Christ
Unless we're first given the power
It's not our decision or our strength
But God's appointed hour

So let us not get caught up
In the pursuit of worldly gain
But seek the Lord with all our hearts
And watch His mercy reign
