Rebellion

These are the words to a great Lecrae song from his new Rebel CD, called Rebel Intro. I found it really inspiring.

Welcome to the rebelution
Jesus was a rebel, a renegade, outlaw, a sanctified troublemaker, but He never sinned, no
And He lived His life by a different set of rules
The culture didn't approve, so you know they had they had to bruise em, that's the way they do it
Man, they swear they're so gangster but everyone's the same
Everybody does the same stuff: tattoos, piercings, smoking and drinking, money and sex, plus them extravagant weekends
Man if that's the high life, I'll puff puff pass that
You leave evaporated like you're missing a gas cap
I guess I'm past that
I am in rebellion
I'd rather have a dollar in my pocket than a million
I'm scared to worship money, and my wants over Elyon
I'll remain a rebel while the rest of them just carry on
This is what I live for, this the hill I'm buried on
If Jesus is the truth, that means one of us is VERY wrong
Think about it
I'm in rebellion
No glory in me, all glory's to the King on the throne, Jesus
You either love Him or leave Him alone, but you can't do both
Yeah, I know you heard that once in song, I pray you hear 10 more before you're gone
Hey listen up, holmes, stage is the corner, crowd is the streets
And I rap the bread of life cause they're dying to eat
I'm a rebel, you know the kind that die in the street
'Cause you refuse to conform, won't eat the king's meat, yeah
Christ rebelled by shunning the cultured
He ate with sinners, giving Pharisees ulcers
He never got married, He was broke and plus homeless
Yeah that's the God I roll with
Your boy's gotta wife and no I never cheat
I'm praying for humility whenever I get heated
Forget about the drugs
Rebel against pornography
This ain't how it ought to be, homey
This is how it's gotta be: a rebel

The message of this song goes along with message of the Rebelution, quite well. I especially like that he mentions pornography as something to be rebelled against. It's something that most people feel awkward talking about, but it needs to be spoken about.

By the way, this is a rap song, which explains some of the interesting lyrics. The rest of the CD has great songs too!
