Everybody STAND UP! Let’s sing a song to God! 1. “To Be Like Jesus,” music and words by Pat Sczebel and Todd Twining © 2009 Sovereign Grace (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI). Sovereign Grace Music, a division of Sovereign Grace Ministries. From To Be Like Jesus.
Jesus was perfect. He never sinned. He never did what was wrong. He shows us how to live to please God.
But we do sin. We can’t be like Jesus on our own. We deserve to be in trouble with God for all the bad things we’ve done, but Jesus died on the cross and was punished instead of us. We can be forgiven by trusting Jesus to take away our sins! Let’s sing this song about how God saves people through Jesus!
2. “Grace (La De Da),” written by Rodney Clawson © 2004 Writer's Extreme Music/Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Co. (BMI). Lyrics taken from the HOLY BIBLE, NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION® NIV® Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society. From Seeds of Faith.
Jesus is the only way that we can be forgiven for the bad things we’ve done. He’s also the only way we can do good things. Because of God’s grace in Jesus, we can have power to do what pleases God. This next song is about getting help from Jesus to do what’s right when we trust Him.
We’re going to pray now, so everybody fold your hands and close your eyes and be still and pay attention to God; we’re going to talk to Him now.
“God, thank You so much for sending Jesus to earth. He is so kind and humble and loving and perfect. Thank You, Jesus, for dying on the cross for us. Help us never to forget what You’ve done. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
Let’s sing another song; this one’s about telling our friends and family what Jesus has done for them!
