Disciple

“All I want to do is to follow Jesus Christ all of my life”

That’s what I told my pastor in 1998, the year I was baptized.

That desire has not changed at all in the years since. It has only deepened and matured in the face of the impossibility of it in my own strength and the certainty of it by His grace.

Though we are saved by faith and live by faith it is grace that gives us that faith and grace that sustains it…it all comes from the One who calls us to Himself.

Disciple 1 by YesToForever

I pick up my cross and I follow you
No matter the cost I will follow you
I love you more than life itself
I give you all my dreams, my wealth
That I may ever be your disciple

And because you died
Upon the cross
And you lay down your life
For all of us
In the face of such love
What can I do
But to pick up my cross and follow you
That I might ever be your disciple

So I pick up my cross and I follow you
No matter the cost I will follow through
Like a seed thats fallen to the ground
When my life is lost, your life is found
And I will ever be your disciple

Oh LORD make me your disciple
All I want to do is to follow you
All of my life
All of my life
