This song is the title track and first single from their debut album.
  • Phillips said of this cut: "This is a song about the busyness of life. All of us have an incredible task balancing daily activities with cell phones and email devices attached to us, and oftentimes it just seems impossible. The lyrics of "One Reason" ask us to put the Lord first, amid the craziness, and remember that He is our one reason for life."
