Our world is full of “that may be true for you, but not for me” conversations. However, when it comes to God, His characteristics don’t change based on my perception of them. In their new song, “Who You Are To Me,” Chris Tomlin and Lady A aren’t suggesting God can be one thing to you and something else to me. Rather, they are giving us lyrics to rehearse the goodness of a very personal God who longs to make His home in our hearts.
In fact, let’s explore the topic of Jesus living inside of our hearts through Scripture.
On this week’s episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
- Exploring a topic
- Marking up the text
- Making a list
- Meditating on Scripture
- The 30 Day Music Challenge – ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE HERE
- How almost every phrase of this song came up in conversation this week
- Enjoying declaring the names and characteristics of God through song
- How God’s characteristics don’t change based on my perception of them
- How Scripture is God’s revealed Word to us, not just stories on a page
- How the question, “Am I still worthy of God’s love?” is the wrong question – God’s love is not bestowed based on worth
- Getting down on my knees as a physical posture that represents my desire for the posture of my heart
- Praying for a hunger and thirst for more of God…He will not leave you empty
- Exploring the topic of Jesus living in our hearts
- Romans 8:9-11
- Ephesians 3:14-19
- Colossians 1:24-29
- Galatians 2:19-21

This Week’s Challenge
Explore these areas in Scripture where we learn about Christ and the Spirit of God living within us. Meditate on the truths found in Romans 8, Ephesians 3, Colossians 1, and Galatians 2. Interact with the Scripture by marking repetitive phrases, making lists, or committing key verses to memory.
