I WANT TO CHANGE 2 PETER 1:3-11

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus – the name that changes everything, He is my king
Why then does my life not reflect it, my words do, my life doesn’t
I’m nervous, or afraid or maybe just a worrier-everything I’m told I don’t have to be
Fearful of loud noises and things that go bump in the night, where is my courage

Jesus calls us to His glory, His excellence, He gives us all things pertaining to life
Wisdom, mercy, grace and understanding, what happened to me, Lord I need you
There is a call from Christ that is understood, change, become more like Jesus
I know it’s a process, a glorious, wonderful process, shepherded by Jesus Himself

We live in the midst of a perverse generation, the world hates Jesus, I want to change
Christ calls me to be a light bearer, to season the world with salt-my actions like Jesus
I am to be His hands and feet, Oh Lord right now I’m neither, what must I do to change?
To become more like you and less like me, Lord I’m on one knee, bring me near, I will follow you

Grow-change the ground upon which you are standing, be a student of the Word, let it sink in
Let His Word cultivate your mind and your heart, the heart is desperately wicked
The Word of God counsels the heart, monitors the mind, Lord create a clean heart in me
Jesus will make you pure, purity is the parade ground of a functioning servant of God

Glow-His purity in you will facilitate developing self-discipline, desire and passion seek control
Jesus gives you control for He lives in you, His presence will encourage perseverance
Perseverance experienced plumbs the depths of your soul, it becomes the iron will that faces life daily
Godliness becomes your default response, you believe and know you believe, Jesus is Lord

Glorify-God in you working out of you will give all honor and glory to God-It’s Jesus
Christ will connect with you, He will direct you, your life will be changed in every way
Now you become servant to all, genuine love for people in your heart, loving those you hate
The life you live, a life of love, caring for the helpless, unlovable and needy-Jesus loves through you

Day by day, remembering that Jesus died for my sin, I pick up my Cross and follow Him
Jesus is Lord of me, today, tomorrow and forever, I love Him
My love for Christ enables me to love, especially when I am not loved
I do what I can do, trusting Jesus with what I can’t do, I’m leaving His mark in the world
