Skillet frontman John Cooper based the lyrics of this pop-based ballad on one of his favorite scriptures, "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." (John 1:5). The message behind the track is because Jesus is the light of the world, Christians don't live in the dark anymore. Cooper commented to New Release Today
"That's incredible news, isn't it? He's taken us from the kingdom of darkness into His glorious light. I think the depth of that scripture and understanding what it means is so good because of how wonderful His light is. This is why the song's message is so powerful. I think it's a really encouraging song."
