All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

Which Jesus do you follow?

Which Jesus do you follow? To many times we as christians follow the 
world then we would rather follow Jesus. Jesus said said "Follow 
Me." But to many times we follow a Jesus that is either made up or 
in a pretty box or made up to be of our standerds. Jesus never 
wanted this. HE wanted us to follow the real Jesus. The one who eat 
with sinners. The one who dispised the proud and hung out with 
the reject, the underdog, the unloved. But to many times we want to 
follow a Jesus that we want to make up. We forget about the Jesus of 
the Bible. We need to go back to the Bible and find the real Jesus. 
Its like my nephew once said "If people knew who the real Jesus was 
it would scare the pants off of them." I belive that. Too many times 
we want a Jesus that fits our standers and will do things when we 
snap our fingers. But Jesus doesnt want us to belive like this. He 
wants us to follow HIM with all our hearts, minds , and souls. Well 
there is a song out that is called My Jesus by Todd Agnew that summs up 
what Im trying to say here it is
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 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!

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

this song was not ment to condem anybody but to show the church that 
it needs to follow the real Jesus.
