All Inclusive

All Inclusive

Why is it that our churches today are so selective
We have to examine people’s lives like a judgmental detective
We feel like we have to interview people before they are allowed in
We don’t look at their good, we just magnify their sin
We search them like a doctor with our analysis
Then we take what we find and state our hypothesis
We find that they are sinful, they’re not at all clean
We keep on doing this it becomes a routine
No wonder why people run away from the church
We do nothing to them but divert them from their search
They’re searching for a savior, they go looking to God
But we make it seem like an exclusive club, but we’re totally fraud
So we cut people down with our words like a sword
We show them the worst, we don’t act like our Lord
We have to put down the swords and throw them away
Because who gave us the power to say who can stay?
What if God showed this attitude toward us?
To see if we are worthy, he wouldn’t even have to discuss
We are all bound by our constant choice of sin
Without God’s grace, there would be nowhere for us to begin
We have to remember that all of us are the same
We so often think we are perfect and misinterpret God’s name
We have to remember that we all come from the same place
We would all be lost forever if it wasn’t for God’s grace
We start to feel proud and we think we’re better than others
We have to confess this, we can’t hide under the covers
So we have to stop looking and focusing on people’s sin
Cause God doesn’t care about who we were or where we’ve been
He loves us despite of all our sin, he cares for us all
He came to break down this judgmental wall
We need to stop judging others and stop being so abusive
Cause we have to remember that God’s kingdom is all inclusive
