Songfacts®:

  • This album closer finds frontman Bart Millard singing about how we can love well all we want, but if we do so without Jesus, it doesn't really mean anything. He explained to New Release Tuesday: It's one thing to pay it forward or to be kind and treat people better, which society will say is good enough, but man, if you're not sharing the Gospel with them, which we believe is the absolute answer to everything, then it's almost offensive.

    People should be one day saying, 'Why didn't you tell me everything and not just get the door for me or tip me as a waitress or whatever? Why did you not tell me this?' The Bible talks about that. When you've done it to the least of these, you've done it to me and they're going Lord, when were you sick? When were you hungry? I think that you can't fall short on this. If that's what we truly believe is that the absolute answer is Christ, then that should be one of the first things that's coming out."
