I want to follow you

Then he [Jesus] said to the crowd,
“If any of you wants to be my follower,
you must turn from your selfish ways,
take up your cross daily, and follow me.”
(Luke 9:23; NLT).

I want to follow you,
Turning away from selfishness –

Help me to bear my cross each day,
To listen, and obey.

I want to live like you,
Changing and growing, all the time –

Help me to walk with you each day,
Choosing your narrow way.

I want to love like you,
Caring for all who cross my path –

Help me to cherish them each day,
To nurture, serve, and pray.

I want to be like you,
Trusting in God, and holding fast –

Then, no matter what life may bring,
I’ll see your face, at last.


When Christ appears, we shall be like him (1 John 3:2; NIV).

I will see your face (Psalm 17:15; NKJV).
