Shortly after writing the Chief album, Church learned that he was going to become a father, with a baby boy due in October 2011. Said Church: "Ironically, the one song to me that has taken on a different meaning is the song I didn't write, which is 'Like Jesus Does.' I have always loved my wife. When you are having a kid, it's a totally different thing. That song's a lot about that. I have a ton of imperfections. I have always been open about that; I mean 'Sinners Like Me' was about that. She has always made me better than who I am and I think that now, in recording that song before finding out we were pregnant, and listening to it now, it's an even deeper meaning. So I am very glad, very glad that song is on the record, and was something we already decided to do before that because it made it that much sweeter."
