Jesus and Eminem said the same thing

They both said to “lose yourself” …… just in a different context.


Eminem said his palms were sweaty.   Jesus’s palms were pierced


Eminem’s knees were weak and arms were heavy from nervousness from a cypher.  Jesus’s knees and arms were weak from carrying a cross.


Eminem has been chewed up and spit up and booed off stage.  Jesus has been chewed up and spit on and mocked for not “having the power” to get down from the cross.


Eminem won’t quit because he knows he’s dope, but he’s broke.   Jesus didn’t quit, not because He’s dope but because He ain’t broke.  He’s got a whole kingdom.


Eminem says “Make me king as we head to a new world order”.  The world is his for the taking.   Jesus is king and said; “Mine IS the kingdom”


Eminem walked the lonely road as a globetrotter, away from home for stardom.  Jesus walked the lonely road away from home for you and I.


Eminem is caught up between being a father and a prima donna.  Jesus was caught up from being the Son of the Father and being a man with no status.


Eminem asks: “Look, if you had one shot or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted, would you do it or let it slip?”    Jesus asks, “Will you deny everything you ever wanted and seize the opportunity to take up your cross and follow Me?”


Eminem said: “Lose yourself in the music, the moment”


Jesus said: “Lose yourself for Me and the sake of the kingdom….. and you will find yourself”.


If you grasp and cling to life on your terms, you’ll lose it, but if you let that life go, you’ll get life on God’s terms. (Luke 17:33)

“Salvation costs you nothing. Discipleship costs you everything.”

    Awesome post Connie. Very witty :). I actually knew a lot of those lyrics. Not sure how or where they got lodged in my brain. I don’t even listen to Eminem…but somehow I do…at least I know the Jesus quotes and where and how they got burned into my being!
