Which Jesus do you follow?


Dis soms vir my verbasend hoeveel ‘n liedjie met mens kan praat.

Sommige liedjies preek soms harder as ‘n goeie predikant!

Een van die liedjies wat in die laaste paar maande nogal hard preek in my lewe, is “My Jesus” van Todd Agnew…

Ek wil dit baie graag met julle deel…

 

 

“Which Jesus do you follow?

Which Jesus do you serve?

If Efesians says to imitate Christ…

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 at the cost of the arrogant

So which one would you like to be?

 

Blessed are the poor in spirit

But do we pray to be blessed with the wealth of this land?

Blessed are they that hunger and thirst for righteousness

But do we ache for another taste of this world of shifting sand?

 

‘Cause my Jesus

Bled and died

He spent His time with thieves and sluts and liars

He loved the poor at the cost of the rich

So which one would you like to be?

 

Who is this 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 scared, 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 at the cost of the comfortable

So which one would you like to be?

 

‘Cause my Jesus

Would never be accepted at my church

The blood and dirt on His feet might stain the carpet

But He preaches for the hurting and despises the proud

And I think He’d prefer Beale street to this stained glass crowd

And I know that He can hear me if I cried out loud:

I wanna be like my Jesus!!!

I wanna be like my Jesus!!!

I wanna be like my Jesus!!!

 

Not a posterchild for American prosperity

But like my Jesus

You see I’m tired of living for success and popularity

I wanna be like my Jesus

But I’m not sure what that means

To be like You Jesus

‘Cause You said to live like You, to love like You… and then You died, for me

Can I be like You Jesus?

I wanna be like You, Jesus

I wanna be like my Jesus!!”

Hoe lyk jou Jesus?
