I Wanna Be A Loser

Standard

I wanna be a loser
So Christ can be the winner
I wanna be the kind of saint
That everyone thinks a sinner

I wanna lose the Election
The Argument
The Fight
So everyone will think I’m wrong
Even though God knows I’m right

‘Cause if I win what the world wants
They’ll think I’m just like them
Doing what we were born to
‘Stead of being born again

I wanna lose my Prosperity
Security
And Pride
‘Cause when I’m truly transparent
Sin will have nowhere to hide

For nothing this world has to offer
Compares to the joy of the cross
The gift of sharing His sufferings
Far outweighs any mortal loss

Growing closer to Jesus
Is the one cry of my heart
But if I’m to inherit the heavens
Then from this world I must part

So I wanna be a loser
‘Cause that’s what He called us to do
So I can become HIS loser
Dear friend,
How ‘bout you?

“Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.”

Mark‬ ‭8:34-35‬ ‭NLT‬‬
