“Fall in Love with Me”

I think it all started one afternoon when I was listening to a Christian music station and realized a lot of Christian music is just plain old romantic songs with Jesus name being substituted for Barry or Jane or Keisha.  So just for fun when listening to secular music I started reversing the process and I have Jesus singing the words with our names in them.  It can be quite interesting.  This afternoon I heard a great one.  It is called, “If I were you I would fall in love with me.”  The lyrics go something like this with Jesus singing, “You look like life’s been leaning on you.  You look like you could use a friend.  If you want somebody you can count on this is what I highly recommend.  If I were you, I’d sit down at my table.  If I were you, that’s where I’d wanna be.  We’d laugh and dance as long as we were able.  Then if I were you, I’d fall in love with me.” *

What a great song because Jesus is always wooing us.  He is the ultimate suitor.  He is relentless.  We could even accuse Him of being a stalker.  He wants us and does all He can to get us because He knows just how great He is for us.   He is the ultimate friend.  He is the source of the abundant life and who doesn’t want that?  If you are conservative and are a bit put off by the thought of dancing with Jesus, it’s okay to dance with Him.  He invented music.  He invented dancing. Please note Psalm 150:4, “Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs.”
