I Never Wanted to Follow Jesus

noSo, in the familiar tune of, “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus,” Red Mountain Church has created a song I think perfectly captures the way Jesus saved me (and you). The lyrics are as follows:

I never wanted to follow Jesus
I never wanted to follow Jesus
I never wanted to follow Jesus
He rescued me; He rescued me
No turning back; No turning back

How sweetly these words remind me of Ephesians 2:1-5 where Paul wrote say:

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved.

Praise God that, though I never wanted to follow Jesus, He rescued me.

Hear the song below.

(Sorry for the silly pictures in the slide show, but I couldn’t find the music accessible for the blog elsewhere.)
