Please tell me the personal story behind this song.
My friend Jeff Pardo and I wrote this song. We’ve written a lot of songs together. A few years ago, at that point in my life, none of my wife’s family knew the Lord. She had a distant cousin who was a believer, and her mom recently came to Christ and has a relationship with Jesus, but the rest of her family thinks we’re crazy. They grew up with a works-based background, and there are a lot of broken relationships. I love them. I love spending time with them, and I see fruit happening and things changing. Honestly, I think it is the work of the Holy Spirit.
The Bible says, “If I be lifted up, I will draw men unto Me.” I’m not going to argue about why the Bible is true. My wife has a brother that is into new age thinking, and I just want to show him love and let the Holy Spirit draw him to Jesus. The Holy Spirit is better at it than I am anyhow.
That’s where this song came from. Trying to literally have people in my wife’s family see Jesus without having me preach about it. When I have the opportunity, I love talking about God’s Word and what we know. They see us making Christian music now, and they ask us questions. It’s an opportunity to be genuine and point them to Christ.
