                          I know a lot of people out there scared they're gon' die
                          A couple of them thinking they'll be livin' in the sky
                          But while I'm here livin' man I gotta ask why, what am here fo' I gotta figure out
                          Waste my life no I gotta make it count
                          If Christ is real then what am I gonna do about
                          Everything in Luke 12: 15 down to 21
                          You've really gotta go and check it out
                          Paul said if Christ ain't resurrected we've wasted our lives
                          Well that implies that our life's built around Jesus being alive
                          Everyday I'm living tryin' to show the world why
                          Christ is more than everything you'll ever try
                          Better than pretty women and sinning and living
                          To get a minute of any women and men that you admire
                          It ain't no lie

                          We're created for Him
                          Outta the dust he made us for Him
                          Elects us and he saves us for Him
                          Jesus comes and he raises for Him
                          Magnify the Father why bother with something lesser
                          He made us so we could bless Him
                          To the world we confess Him, resurrects Him
                          So I know I got life
                          Matter fact better man I know I got Christ
                          If you don't see His ways in my days and nights
                          You can hit my brakes you can stop my life
                          Then I lost my rights
                          I lost my life
                          Forget the money cars and toss that ice
                          The cost is Christ
                          And they could never offer me anything on the planet that would cost that price.

                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life

                          Don't wanna waste my life

                          Armed and dangerous
                          So the devil just can't hang with us
                          Christian youth them will stand with us
                          Living and driven, given a vision, fulfillin' the commission he handed us
                          London to Los Angeles, the rap evangelist
                          My daddy wouldn't abandon us
                          I gotta backpack full of tracts and I keep it on the Johnny Mac
                          So are you ready to jam with us
                          So let's go, give me the word an let's go
                          Persecution let's go

                          Across the nation let's go
                          Procrastination let's go
                          Hung on the cross in the cold
                          Died for the young and the old
                          Can't say you never know
                          Heaven knows how many souls are going to hell or to heaven so we gotta go in to get them

                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my, don't wanna waste my
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my, don't wanna waste my
                          Don't wanna waste my life

                          Suffer, yeah, do it for Christ
                          You're trying to figure what to do with your life
                          If you make a lot of money hope you're doing it right
                          Because the money is God's you better steward it right
                          And stay focused, you ain't got no ride
                          Your life ain't wrapped up in what you drive
                          The clothes you wear, the job you work
                          The colour your skin, naw you're a Christian first
                          People get to living for a job
                          Make a little money start living for a car
                          Get 'em a wife a house kids and a dog
                          Then they retire they're living high on the hog
                          But guess what they didn't ever really live at all
                          To live is Christ and that's Paul I recall
                          To die is gain so for Christ we give it all
                          He's the treasure you'll never find in a mall
                          Your money your singleness marriage talent your time
                          They were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is Divine
                          That's why it's Christ in my rhymes
                          That's why it's Christ all the time
                          See my whole world is built around Him He's the life in my lines
                          I refused to waste my life
                          He's too true to chase that ice
                          Here's my gifts and time 'cause I'm constantly trying to be used to praise the Christ
                          If he's truly raised to life
                          Then this news should change your life
                          And by his grace you can put your faith in place that rules your days and nights

                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my, don't wanna waste my
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my life, life, life
                          Don't wanna waste my, don't wanna waste my
                          Don't wanna waste my life

                                  Don't wanna waste my, don't wanna waste my
                                  Don't wanna waste my life
                                  Suffer, yeah, do it for Christ
                                  You're trying to figure what to do with your life
                                  If you make a lot of money hope you're doing it right
                                  Because the money is God's you better steward it right
                                  And stay focused, you ain't got no ride
                                  Your life ain't wrapped up in what you drive
                                  The clothes you wear, the job you work
                                  The colour your skin, naw you're a Christian first
                                  People get to living for a job
                                  Make a little money start living for a car
                                  Get 'em a wife a house kids and a dog
                                  Then they retire they're living high on the hog
                                  But guess what they didn't ever really live at all
                                  To live is Christ and that's Paul I recall
                                  To die is gain so for Christ we give it all
                                  He's the treasure you'll never find in a mall
                                  Your money your singleness marriage talent your time
                                  They were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is Divine
                                  That's why it's Christ in my rhymes
                                  That's why it's Christ all the time
                                  See my whole world is built around Him He's the life in my lines
                                  I refused to waste my life
                                  He's too true to chase that ice
                                  Here's my gifts and time 'cause I'm constantly trying to be used to praise the Christ
                                  If he's truly raised to life
                                  Then this news should change your life
                                  And by his grace you can put your faith in place that rules your days and nights
                                  Don't wanna waste my life, life, life

                                                        I like this song. It's how I feel I don't want to waste my life. I like the beat to as well as the words. We waste our time with letting different things hold us back.

                                                                                      Redemption is the second life so if the BIBLE teaches us how to live in order to claim eternal life it could in some sorts be called the fountain of life. For this is the only way to life because this life is just temporary and our spirit will remain somewhere forever. Either a second death cast into hell for Satan and his followers in torment for eternity or you can reach out and claim eternal life and life more abundantly with Christ and GOD ALMIGHTY in heaven for an eternity. Life is just a test to see which place you choose to spend eternity so reach out for life.
