Living Under the Influence : Surrender to the Spirit

Some Christians of the Baptist persuasion Tend to view the Holy Spirit as an optional vocation Why do we do this? We must consider the need to understand That the Holy Spirit represents the feminine woman and not the God head man We need to stop minimizing the Holy Spirit's role Because if we fall for that deception we've just given Lucifer control We need the power of the Holy Spirit in order to withstand The machinations of Satan and his diabolical plans And don't think that our credentials, our accomplishments nor all our awards Will ever be sufficient to stand up to Satan's sword We must stop sputtering, stop stuttering and stop quenching the Holy Spirit's power Or we will never ever receive the living waters at our appointed hour To be what God wants us to be we must let the Holy Spirit run the show And allow the rivers of living water from within us to forever flow As the Spirit is always ready to guide us to be the best version of whom we should be Just understand God doesn't do mass productions but individual works of artistry So we must present ourselves as a living sacrifice renewed and now transformed And let our reasonable service, our worship be a commitment to which we've conformed God will then equip us with the instrument unique to our virtuosity So we can live under the influence of the Spirit for all the world to see Yes we must surrender to the Spirit to let go and let God No longer to try to control life's outcome just allowing God to do His part And no don't stop any critical thinking as we must be able to comprehend That God is God all by Himself and we're just mere women and men Jesus didn't come to simply rearrange the outside trappings of our lives His purpose was to reposition our inner selves plus be an example of service and sacrifice Yes we must humble ourselves so that we may come to envision What God has destined for us and not the world's revision Living under the influence of the Holy Spirit of the Lord God Christ Is to be continuously filled with the living waters everyday of our Christian lives
