Podcast #44: “Baby Boy” by For King & Country

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

When you strip everything away and focus intently on the baby Jesus of the Bible, you will see what For King & Country describes in their song, “Baby Boy” — you will see a king without a crown, a baby boy without a bed, and unexpected majesty.


Hopefully, at the end of our study, we will respond as the band does with a resounding, “Alleluia, what a King!”

In this week’s episode, I discuss:

  • The epic crescendo of the arrival of baby Jesus
  • How God had this plan from the beginning
  • The fullness of time found in Galatians 4:4-5
  • How God began with the end in mind even before He made the world in Ephesians 1:4-5
  • How God’s plan is all about relationship
  • Jesus was not just a willing participant but was in on the planning John 1:1-5, 14
  • Focusing on the details of Jesus revealed in Luke 1 & 2
