Podcast #379: “Less Like Me” by Zach Williams

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.

There’s a great invitation in Scripture. It’s sprinkled throughout the pages of the Bible in the Old and New Testaments. The invitation is to walk in newness of life in the very presence of our Creator and direct opposition to our human nature. Zach Williams sings of this idea in his song “Less of Me.”

Let’s explore Paul’s letter to the Colossians to see what living a little more like Jesus looks like.

In this episode I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Reading in context
    • Read the envelope
    • Consider the historical background
    • Consult an outside resource
    • Read the overview/introduction
    • Consult a map
    • Make a list
    • Compare and contrast
  • The 30 Day Music Challenge
  • Reading the letter all the way through
  • My favorite overview resource – The Bible Project
  • The solution of spiritual maturity in Christ
  • Focusing our attention and efforts in the right direction – Colossians 3:1-4
  • Dying to self – Colossians 2:12-14
  • Killing off the earthly remnants in our lives – Colossians 3:5-11
  • Putting on a new wardrobe that looks a whole lot more like Jesus – Colossians 3:12-17
