  • Lyrics
  • Lecrae closes his Anamoly album with this rally to believers. He explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct: "'Messengers' is the evidence of healing. 'Messengers' is the evidence that we're not just arbitrarily on this planet," he said. "We're not just here for no reason. There are people who need to experience and taste the healing and the love we've tasted. There are people who need to taste the grace and forgiveness we've been given. We see the evidence of that every day from what happens around the world every day. You see it in servicemen to what's happened in Iraq, Israel, and Palestine. People need to experience love, forgiveness, and healing."
  • The song features For King & Country harmonizing. For King & Country is a Christian pop duo made up of Australian brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone. They are the younger brothers of Christian singer-songwriter and speaker Rebecca St James, and the brothers-in-law of Jacob Fink, bassist for the band Foster the People.
  • This won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song. Lecrae was also nominated in the Best Rap Performance category for "All I Need is You," but lost to Kendrick Lamar's "I." In his acceptance speech Lecrae said, "You can't celebrate gifts without celebrating the giver of all gifts, so I want to celebrate Jesus."
