[download.] LJ “Caesar”
“And Jesus said to them, ‘Whose likeness and inscription is this?’ They said, ‘Caesar’s.’ Then he said to them, ‘Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.'” (Matthew 22:21) When the pharisees saw this reply they marveled at Jesus’ wisdom, but what is the lesson being taught that is relevant for the culture today? Caesar highlights the parallel found in Genesis 1:26, recounting the likeness that man is made in, to boldly proclaim in the hook, “Give it all to Jesus.” Backed by strong production from Shadowville resident Allroundabeats and pointed, original lyrics from Indianapolis native LJ, the listener is encouraged to look at external possessions that can be rendered back to temporary images, or Caesars, as means to examine the internal likeness that should be wholly rededicated to mirror its original appearance, fully visualized by Jesus.
