To Be Like Him

  1. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. ~ Gal. 2:20 NIV

    I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead. ~ Phil. 3:10-11 NIV

    But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. ~ Ro. 6:22 NIV

    Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure. ~ 1 Jn. 3:2-3 NIV

    To Be Like Him / An Original Work
    March 16, 2014 / Based off Scripture

    Crucified you are with Jesus.
    To be like Him, oh, you’ll be,
    Because He died at Calv’ry,
    So from sin you’d be free.
    Oh, what joy He brings into your life,
    Giving life with Him endlessly.

    Oh, what plans He has for your life.
    Share the gospel faithfully.
    Show the people He loves them.
    Now His witness you’ll be.
    Tell the world of sin about Jesus,
    How He died for them on a tree.

    Purifying hearts, He saves them,
    Who believe on Christ, God’s Son.
    Turning now from their idols,
    New lives they have begun.
    Jesus saves from sin; we’re forgiven.
    Over sin, the vict’ry He won!

    When He comes again to take us
    To be with Him evermore,
    There will be no more crying.
    Gladness will be in store.
    Heavens joys will now overtake us:
    We’ll be with our Lord evermore.
