Podcast #142: “Home” by Chris Tomlin

Learning More About Our Future Home in 2 Corinthians 5

What do you think about when you think of home? For some it conjures up happy memories, warm feelings, and/or thoughts of family…for others, not so much. Some of you live in a state or town where your heart considers “home” and others are “far from home.” As Christians we know we are not yet “home” in the eternal sense. Chris Tomlin’s song “Home” speaks of our heavenly home and it leads us to an area of Scripture that can both encourage us and challenge us as we continue to walk out our lives here on earth.

Podcast #110: “Alive In Me” by JJ Weeks Band

Chronicling a Journey in 2 Corinthians

When a song like “Alive In Me” by JJ Weeks Band can so clearly list out truths found in God’s Word, I can’t help but be inspired to jump right in. When you take the time to dwell in the same places the songwriters did, the meaning gets deeper, the lyrics seem richer and the Truth invades your memory.

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.
