Podcast #336: “God So Loved” by We the Kingdom

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.

The invitation is out there. It’s been sent. Will you open it, read it, and toss it aside? Perhaps you’ll open it and put it on the fridge intending to respond “one day.” We The Kingdom sings the invitation to “come” in their song “God So Loved.”

Come, let us explore the call to follow and where it might lead.

On this episode I discuss:
