Don’t Waste Your Life Video

Just as we continue to study the importance of a life well lived in our “132 Pictures” series, I came across this music video from LeCrae (produced by Desiring God Ministries) of his song, “Don’t Waste Your Life.” I also looked up the lyrics and posted them below so you have a better chance of following along. Enjoy.

[Verse 1]
I know a lot of people out there scared they gone die
couple of em thinking they’ll be livin in the sky
but while Im here livin man I gotta ask why
what am here fo I gotta figure out
waste my life/ no I gotta make it count
if Christ is real then what am I gone do about
all of the things in Luke 12:15 down to 21 you really oughta go and check it out
Paul said if Christ aint resurrect then we wasted our lives
well that implies that our life’s built around Jesus being alive
everyday I’m living tryin show the world why
Christ is more than everything you’ll ever try
better than pretty women and sinning and living
to get a minute of any women and men that you admire aint no lie
We created for Him outta the dust he made us for Him
Elects us and he saves us for Him Jesus comes and raises for Him
Magnify the Father why bother with something lesser
he made us so we could bless Him and to the world we confess him
resurrects him so I know I got life matter fact better man I know I got Christ
if you don’t’ see His ways in my days and nights
you can hit my brakes you can stop my lights
man I lost my rights I lost my life
forget the money cars and toss that ice
the cost is Christ
and they could never offer me anything on the planet that’ll cost that price

[Verse 2]
Suffer Yeah do it for Christ if you trying to figure what to do with your life
if you making money hope you doing it right
because the money is Gods you better steward it right
stay focused if you aint got no ride
your life aint wrapped up in what you drive
the clothes you wear the job you work
the color your skin naw we Christian first
people living life for a job make a lil money start living for a car
get em a house a wife kids and a dog when they retire they living high on the hog
but guess what they didn’t ever really live at all to live is Christ yeah that’s Paul I recall
to die is gain so for Christ we give it all he’s the treasure you’ll find in the mall
Your money your singleness marriage talent and time
they were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is Divine
that’s why it’s Christ in my rhymes That’s why it’s Christ all the time
my whole world is built around him He’s the life in my lines
I refused to waste my life he’s too true ta chase that ice
heres my gifts and time cause I’m constantly trying to be used to praise the Christ
If he’s truly raised to life then this news should change your life
and by his grace you can put your faith in place that rules your days and nights
