The idea for the song came to Matt Redman as he was reading Acts 1. A light bulb went off in his head when he came across the verse where two angels tell the disciples that one day Jesus will return."Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven." (Acts 1:11 NIV
Redman explained to New Release Today
: "The phrase, 'This same Jesus,' struck me. And, I realized there was a song in that. He's going to come back someday. Any time in history, He's always there, whether it be the creation, the cross, or His future glory."
