Podcast #59: “Jesus Messiah” by Chris Tomlin

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.

I uncovered a special assignment given by God this week just by reading the context of a verse quoted in this week’s song by Chris Tomlin. “Jesus Messiah” is full of Scripture and leads us straight to God’s Word and to the heart of His task for us. Then the song leads us back to a heart of worship.


It’s going to be an adventure this week!


In this episode, I discuss the following:

  • The first lyric of the song comes straight from Scripture! – 2 Corinthians 5:21
  • Rhythm and rhyme tuck Scripture deep into the recesses of your mind
  • How we get distracted from the tasks at hand
  • God’s task for us found in 2 Corinthians 5:15, 18-21
  • The Greek word for reconciliation
  • We are God’s ambassadors
  • Article discussing the meaning of the statement “He BECAME sin” found in our song and verses this week
  • Resource I created to assist in studying the Scriptures referenced by this week’s song (Click Here)
  • Messiah means Anointed One

Enjoy the official lyric video below.

Additional Resources

This Week’s Challenge

Use the resource I created to meditate on the Scriptures that relate to each lyric in this week’s song. It will really make the song come alive, and in turn, the Scripture will come alive to you as you pair the two. Bonus points will be awarded if while you’re meditating on a verse it inspires you to read it in context!
