He says delivering the gospel message is like being a mailman. In a Songfacts interview
, he explained the importance of the analogy:
"It really keeps you sober. It keeps a humble perspective on the message you bring and the affect of the message. Because people's lives really are transformed. You go out here and you do music, and you talk to people, and literally there's a transformation in their lives. Like, they're not the same anymore. And a lot of times they want to accredit that to you and give you the credit. But really I'm just a conduit. I'm the mailman."
