When you love someone enough to die for Him
That is when you’ll truly begin
To live the kind of life that Jesus led,
Serving one another instead
Of thinking of yourself and all that you lack
As though you’re a victim or “under attack.”
Jesus was tempted when He was most weak.
Yet to the rocks He did not speak.
He withstood the temptation and passed the test,
By serving His Father and not His flesh.
And this He did as an example for me,
A lesson in life if I’m to be free,
Free from my flesh, deceived and disturbed,
There thinks it’s not getting what it deserves.
If I can realize that Jesus has fought
These same voices…then I ought
To be able to kill my flesh as well
Cause if I don’t, it’ll take me to hell.
