John Piper | – Without Jesus – Shane & Shane

Lyrics:

Just three chords and a melody
Won’t leave you a living legacy
Without Jesus
Just four songs and a parable
Might leave you something terrible
Just five bucks in an offering
Won’t buy you some prosperity
Just a sixth sense of morality
Won’t get you out of your depravity
Without Jesus, oh, without Jesus

You could memorize
Become a Mennonite
You could speak in tongues
And raise the dead to life
You could build a big church
Call it ministry
Teach ’em all they need to know to run a family
You could sell it all
Be burned at the stake
But what in the world have you to ever gain
Without Jesus, oh, without Jesus

If all I ever get out of laying my life down
Is thorns in the shape of a crown
On the brow of a man from Nazareth
And if all I get is what Jesus did,
And said, and put within my heart
Then I get it all
I have it all
Oh, I have it all
Everything is mine
Oh, I have it all
I have it all

Just three chords and a melody
Won’t leave you a living legacy
Without Jesus

  1. Romans 5 tells us that those who do not believe in Jesus are "enemies of God." 7micho7, I understand your angry sentiment against Jesus; you hate him – the Bible is clear about that, even though he has offered you new life and an escape from the coming punishment that you will receive; a literal eternal tormenting for denying Jesus. You still have time..but how much? Only God knows. Repent and be saved.

  2. The most powerful line in that song for me is "Everything is mine"… I love that! Psalm 34:10 says that we lack no good thing! 🙂 EVERYTHING IS MINE!!!!

    The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want (Psalm 23:1)

  3. brandon…  believing in Jesus like falling in love with somebody and then saying you never loved them when it's all over…. and thats crazy… I love Jesus he isn't a belief he is my friend…. He has changed this man more than you could ever know, without him I am a wretch that lives for my own "better" life but it is only emptiness… It is easy to see by your words that you are not happy but savored with bitterness and unbelief…. I would venture to say you never knew my Jesus if you can say you don't long for him in the deepest parts of your heart…. Preaching against Christ will only draw out His grace towards you and your depravity… You condemn a man that bleed and died for you, sounds about right… we all have…. now open up your eyes and return to Him in gratitude that which you are stealing from Him…. Your love and life! He Loves you why do you resist Him??? Repent 

  4. Brandon, God grants you the free gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ.  When He hung there on that tree He wasn't thinking about Himself.  He was thinking of you, of me, of everyone in this world and He forgave them all.  You dont know when you will die, so repent and deeply ask God to come into your heart and change all that is in your heart right now.  Start reading His word and find a church that would help you grow spiritually.  By what you previously said you will spend an eternity in hell.  That's not God's will. So repent, trust in Jesus, and serve Him in all that you do. 

  5. some people don't see the truth. Please be careful of what your lyrics are really saying, "Shane & Shane"!!! I lv the song, "Though You Slay Me"  but I don't agree completely with your views, but it is a really well put together alt for me atm, so tyvm!!
