This celebration of the victories that Christians are promised in Christ was inspired by the troubles of Bart Millard
's middle son Charlie. The MercyMe frontman explained to New Release Tuesday: "One day I was trying to tell my son, because he has a stuttering problem, we were talking, and I said, 'Buddy, people may make fun of you, but you have something inside of you that is telling you that you're something different, that you're stronger than that and that you're beautiful.'"
"We were at church one day and some kids made of him and he was kind of down," Millard continued. "I told him, 'You know what I've told you. That's not them. The enemy may be using them, but these kids are good kids. They're not coming after you, it's just the enemy is taking shots at you. He's taking shots at you because you're something special and he's afraid of something you may do.'"
"I've always told him to set his mind on things above, and he started singing this song, 'You are holy, righteous and redeemed,'" Millard added. "I just started bawling. From time to time I can hear him singing this song in the house and I've thought that's the reason to make a record."
