Riff: Snoop Dogg – “Voices of Praise”

Mar 19, 2018

I see you playing games with that smile on your face/I see you playing games with that smile on your face/It takes a dedicated person to run this race/You got to be dedicated to run this race

from Voices of Praise lyrics by Snoop Dogg

Pastor Snoop reminds the congregation that the race to heaven is a long one, and that in order to make it through to the end one needs to be disciplined. It starts with confession and making sure you are honest with yourself; that way you aren’t the cause of your own fall. He then goes on to explain that vanity and ego will distort the truth, and if you trust in the lord all will be taken care of.
