Come to Jesus

Album: No Changin' Us (2010)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This is the lead single from No Changin' Us, the eighth studio album by Christian group Point of Grace. The record was their first full-length release since the June 2008 departure of Heather Payne reduced the group to a trio. The album was produced by Nathan Chapman, who has also worked with country singer Taylor Swift.
  • Group member Denise Jones told New Release Tuesday about the main message of the song: "The message of 'Come to Jesus' is evident in the song's title. Often we get depleted and it's when we're depleted that we call out to Him, but we don't need to wait. We can call out in the middle of everyday challenges. The song is a very simple message with an eternal value, and that value is having a relationship in Christ. Many people mistakenly believe that they have to be perfect because God only loves those who are good. Really this song is saying the reason that Jesus came is for the broken, for the depleted, weary and bitter. Don't sit there and start thinking, I've got to start acting better before I can do that. He came for everyone."
