#1 “Just Like You” – Lecrae
Young hip-hop artist Lecrae is behind several popular Christian rap songs, though this one might just ring the truest of all to younger generations. The song, as well as the music video, exhibits his journey for a role model. Picking them one by one, he eventually ditches celebrities and media in favor for Jesus and his example.
#2 “Voice of Truth” – Casting Crowns
Featured in the trailer for the 2006 movie Facing the Giants, this song, written by Mark Hall and Steven Curtis Chapman, is a mosaic of renowned biblical tales. Some of the best examples are represented by the story of David and Goliath, Peter walking on water, etc. All of these basically make the perfect foundation for popular Christian songs.
#3 “Made to Love” – TobyMac
Another rap song, Made to Love delivers its core message right with the title. The lyrics are annexed to a catchy rhythm and they speak of the fundamental element of Christianity: love and acceptance. The main message is that we were all created to love others and to be loved by God.
#4 “By Your Side” – Tenth Avenue North
Rather than being a direct reference to a quote or a Bible passage, this is a song that conveys messages of love, peace, and understanding, all of which make up the mosaic of fundaments and beliefs standing at the core of faith of all kinds.
#5 “Why Should The Devil Have All The Good Music” – Larry Norman
There is something strange about this particular song. Despite the obvious message that might be conveyed in the title, the message of this tune is actually surprising. Normal actually jumps to the defense of other musical genres and, upon giving it a thorough listen, it becomes clear that the song is a line-up of reasons why Normal chose to make Christian music.
#6 “The Proof of Your Love” – for KING & COUNTRY
The message found within the lyrics of this song created by the Australian pop duo is as simple as it is sufficiently inspiring to all of us. We should all aim to do everything in our lives with spirit, with heart, and with passion. It’s why they write music that blends in with gospel in the first place, as they have confessed.
#7 “Set the World on Fire” – Britt Nicole
Through this song, Christian singer and songwriter Britt Nicole basically manages to touch down on the healing aspects of faith. She speaks of her desire to change the world in this hymn spoken directly to God, claiming that anything is possible with His help and guidance.
#8 “Sunshine” – Jukebox Wagon
Unfortunately, the band has broken up since the release of this song, but that shouldn’t stop you from giving a listen to one of their most inspiring songs. Sunshine speaks of how we should abstain from judging and how we should all deal with our struggles and obstacles, all culminating to a chorus given in Jesus’ own perspective.
