I love Chris Tomlin's songs, because they are so grounded in scripture. And being that we just celebrated the Resurrection of our Savior, I thought this song was fitting for today-Jesus Messiah by Chris Tomlin. I never tire of hearing this song. It is such a great reminder of what Jesus did for me. The chorus alone is so powerful for His name alone is power. Jesus is the Messiah-the anointed One, the great High Priest, the Son of God, the Christ. He was Emmanuel, God with us; for the Most Holy God dwelt among mankind. He is my Redeemer, my Rescuer, and He paid my ransom as I sat in bondage to sin. I was held captive, unable to pay; but He could, and so He did. The Perfect Lamb, pure, spotless, free from sin became sin for me. I love the words "the whole earth trembled and the veil was torn." What Jesus did on that cross was literally earth shattering. It was undeniable. And because of Jesus, the veil was torn in half. I can now enter into the Holy of Holies, the presence of the Almighty God. The final, perfect High Priest, the perfect Lamb has taken down the barrier between a sinner like myself and the Most Holy God. Love so amazing!
He became sinWho knew no sinThat we might become His RighteousnessHe humbled himself and carried the cross
