Love songs, in my view, are one of the ways God speaks, a kind of Radio Free Europe broadcast to a world held by the Enemy. It’s a way God speaks to Christians too — because we can get numbed, imprisoned by religious practice, religious speech. (Ever wondered why certain VERY religious Christians seem to be light years from the Gospel?)
In a love song, God speaks “under the radar.” And we get to hear in a fresh way what it means for the Beloved (the singer) to get his entire identity from the One who loves him. No work, no try, no do. No self-generated willed anything. The language of love (and every real love song) is always about how YOU MAKE ME _____.
Take a listen (the video has the lyrics too) — and if you like it, listen again after Easter.
