Then Sings My Soul Saturdays



Well I've been wanting to join in on this for a few weeks, so without further delay......
A song that I really love is My Jesus by Todd Agnew
It just makes me feel like Jesus is so real and not of this world. It reminds me not to be judgmental(as I often tend to be) and that the way the world thinks is not the way of Christ! So if you haven't heard take a listen. For more Then Sings My Soul Saturdays visit Amy at Signs, Miracles and Wonders! And she's having a CD giveaway too!





And in case you don't want to click... here are the lyrics
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 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 my Jesus!
I want to be like my Jesus!
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 you Jesus!
I want to be like my Jesus!

Oh my gosh, I'm so glad you shared this song because I never heard it before! I love how they play clips of the movie w/ this song. So powerful!!

We love Todd Agnew. We were blessed by him coming to our church last year!! We're not even a "big" church. He was sooooo humble!!!!!!!!!! Love his voice and his songs! I'm going to have to buy this one on Itunes!!!!

Have a blessed weekend!!

Loved this song, I had never heard it before. Thanks for sharing. Makes me think about how I would be if Jesus were here today like He was then and how many times I've probably passed Him on the streets or ignored Him.
