Pilgrims Transforming

“Beloved, I urge you as aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which wage war against the soul.” –1 Peter 2:11, ESV

Pilgrims Transforming

There is no compromise
Looking to Jesus with these eyes
No sport with the enemy
No competition to be seen
We are non-conformers
We are transformers
Pilgrims and strangers
In a strange land—Aliens
To anything but God’s command
Feeding on The Bread Life
Which came down from heaven
We live without strife
Every Word of God—our food
And we avoid the Viper’s Brood
We baptize into new life—
New covenant people—Born again
Unfettered from slavery to our sin
We are pilgrims transforming
Settling for nothing less than restoration
With compromise—there is no norming
It is the very gates of Hell we are storming
Until His Kingdom comes, until His will is done
And all come to know Jesus, God’s own Son
