MY JESUS!

I JUST GOT THE NEW TODD AGNEW CD AND LET ME JUST SAY THAT IT KICKS THE OLE' DEVIL IN THE BOOTY...IT IS JUST THAT GOOD! I AM SO AMAZED AT THE HUMBLE MANNER IN WHICH TODD AND HIS BAND SERVE THE LORD THROUGH THEIR MUSIC. IN A WORLD WHERE CHRISTIAN MUSIC IS OFTEN BLURRED INTO SECULAR MAINSTREAM IT IS A BLESSING TO SEE A MAN AFIRE FOR THE LORD! MAY GOD BLESS YOU DEEPLY TODD... HERE ARE THE LYRICS TO MY FAVORITE SONG (ALTHOUGH ALL ARE GOOD)...ALSO CHECK OUT TODD AGNEW'S SIGHT! AWESOME!...WHEN I FIRST HEARD THIS SONG IT SENT CHILLS UP MY SPINE AND A COLD REALITY IN MY SOUL, THE LYRICS SHY AWAY FROM NOTHING, THEY ARE HONEST AND HARD TO SWALLOW...READ FOR YOURSELF...

My Jesus
by Todd Agnew

Which Jesus do you follow?
Which Jesus do you serve?
If Ephesians says to imitate Christ
Then why do you look so much like the world?

Cause my Jesus bled and died
He spent His time with thieves and liars
He loved the poor and accosted the arrogant
So which one do you want to be?

Blessed are the poor in spirit
Or do we pray to be blessed with the wealth of this land
Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for righteousness
Or do we ache for another taste of this world
of shifting sand

Cause my Jesus bled and died for my sins
He spent His time with thieves and sluts and liars
He loved the poor and accosted the rich
So which one do you want to be?

Who is it that You follow
This picture of the American dream
If Jesus was here would you walk right by on
the other side or fall down and worship at His holy feet

Pretty blue eyes and curly brown hair and a
clear complexion
Is how you see Him as He dies for Your sins
But the Word says He was battered and scarred
Or did you miss that part
Sometimes I doubt we'd recognize Him

Cause my Jesus bled and died
He spent His time with thieves and the least of these
He loved the poor and accosted the comfortable
So which one do you want to be?

Cause my Jesus would never be accepted in my church
The blood and dirt on His feet might stain the carpet
But He reaches for the hurting and despises the proud
I think He'd prefer Beale St. to the stained glass crowd
And I know that He can hear me if I cry out loud

I want to be like Jesus

Not a posterchild for American prosperity,
but like my Jesus
You see I'm tired of living for success and popularity
I want to be like my Jesus but I'm not sure what that
means to be like You Jesus
Cause You said to live like You, love like You
but then You died for me
Can I be like you Jesus?
I want to be like My Jesus.

Hey, I commented to you on Kat's post (about the silence thing)

Tell me what you think..
Gayla said…
I didn't want to get kat's comments any more off track than they were...

but I wanted to tell you that I loved what you said about sacrifice. It's true - in our selfishness, no one wants to sacrifice!!!! We are all about convenience and having things go our way. We surely don't do sacrifice well at all.
