Thought Provoking Song...

This song, I heard on the radio a good while ago, then again today, and it has such a profound message. Just read and see...If you've heard it, you know what I mean. Only 1 thing, in my church, Jesus would be welcomed, open arms falling at His feet. The singer is 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 sinners and liars
He loved the poor and accosted the rich
So which one do you want 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 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 would stain the carpet
But He reaches for the hurting and despised 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 my Jesus!
I want to be like my Jesus!

So very powerful. I am challenged and am challenging everyone, be more charitable, not because of the good you receive, but because that's what Jesus did. He went out of His way to save and help us all. Surely we can continue stepping out of our comfort zones and help those in need. There are so many people out there who are hurting, alone, on drugs, homeless, pregnant an in trouble, sick, elderly, there is a place for everyone to help. Please go out and find what you can do, and then do it well. Do it in Jesus' name. What good is it if you don't tell them about Jesus? I promise, if you meet some of their needs, they may, and some will listen. They may not respond the way you want, but they will have heard that Jesus loves them, and what He did for them, and just how special they are, because Jesus died for them to have the chance to go to Heaven. Think about it, the Son of God, the King of kings, loves you, us all. That's amazing! Tell them who Jesus is, share Him with them. Pick up a few Bibles, and give them out to whom ever God lays on your heart to help. Read the story of the Good Samaritan, it is soooo much more than a Sunday school lesson for children. We need to be a Samaritian every day with the faith of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.

Thank You Lord for a fresh inspiration and focus.

Hope you have an absolutely Beautiful time serving the Lord by helping those in need.

What a wonderful testimony to your church, Sarah, that the people would fall down and worship Jesus. That's the only kind of church I want to be involved with and the church where I was saved was like that. I miss it so much's off in another town.

Thanks for sharing the lyrics on your site. It's a profound message; no doubt about it!

Love You, My Sister!
