Every day at KAMB, we hope to encourage each member of our listening family through fresh music and biblical programming. Our staff seek out songs with God-honoring messages and pray that they will speak to the hearts of our listeners. Just Like Jesus by Iveth Luna is exactly one of those songs.
Before succeeding as a CCM artist, Iveth Luna grew up in a loving, ministry focused family. From childhood, she was surrounded by relatives who loved the Lord and who used their gifts to honor Him. Unlike her male relatives, however, Luna didn’t see herself becoming a worship leader. In fact, it wasn’t until she saw Kari Jobe on stage that Luna realized women could even be worship leaders. Despite this revelation, it wasn’t until her freshman year of college that Luna felt the Lord calling her to ministry as a worship leader. Her passion for worship and songwriting exploded shortly after His call, and Luna has used her talents to worship God ever since. In 2022, Luna made her CCM debut with her single “In You”. Since then, she has released new songs and continued growing her musical career. Her latest single is her song Just Like Jesus.
Just Like Jesus
Luna uses Just Like Jesus to remind us of how completely we are loved by our Savior. Every lyric describes an attribute of Jesus’ character and reminds us of the promises God has made though His Son. He fills every gap we face and supplies strength for every trial and shortcoming. Luna also fills Just Like Jesus with her resounding desire to be more like Him in everything. We often find ourselves in a similar position when we remember all that the Lord has done for us. Jesus steps into our circumstances and covers us with His absolute love and grace. In turn, witnessing the example of our Savior encourages us to pursue His ways rather than our own. As His blessings pour into us, His love pours out of us. Have you ever experienced a season of blessing that prompts you to share out of your abundance with others? That’s the ripple effect of Jesus.

As you go about your week, remember what the Lord has done and promised in your life. All of us face trials of varying shapes and sizes, but we worship the same Lord. When we choose to remember His faithfulness, everything else shifts into the right perspective. It’s Just Like Jesus to step into our brokenness and make us whole, and it’s fitting that His actions stir our desire to be more like Him ourselves.

Iveth Luna grew up in Mesquite, Texas, just outside of Dallas. She is part of a family where ministry is just way of life. She began to explore her talent as a singer and songwriter after she encountered the music of Kari Jobe. That is when the Lord began to unfold the plan He had for her gifts and talents. First, as she began singing in church at the age of 16, and then during her freshman year in college she had an amazing encounter with the Lord and she knew that her true calling was to be involved in music, but was unsure how that would happen.
Iveth explains her encounter with the Lord here
Luna began writing songs and music that reflected her heart. The Lord opened the door for Luna to meet the Ward Brothers, known for their band Consumed By Fire. They encouraged her to make a trip to Nashville and shortly before the pandemic hit, she met executives at Red Street Records!
Soon after the introduction, she signed a record deal and began collaborating with producer Kevin Rooney. She has written “I Still Believe” for a time during the pandemic when she saw people become complacent in their faith. Iveth then wrote “Second Chances” with Jordan and Caleb Ward and Brian Bunn. This song sends the clear message that we are all human and God has extended grace to each of us and calls us to extend grace to our fellow humans.
“In You” is Iveth’s latest single is the perfect reminder to us all that our strength comes from the Lord. Written by Iveth, Jordan and Caleb Ward and Don Koch, we are reminded that we all need confidence in every situation in life and Christ is the perfect source. Enjoy the official lyric video below.
