Podcast #59: “Jesus Messiah” by Chris Tomlin & 2 Corinthians 5

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.
