I don’t know about you, but I love to hear the stories from songwriters about how their songs came about. Matt Maher’s “Because He Lives (Amen)” is no exception. This great song was the result of the collaboration of several well-known artists. In the video below, Matt Maher tells in his own words how the song was conceived and developed. Matt says, “Everything we do as Christians comes after the fact of the resurrection. Therefore, because Jesus lives, __________ fill in the blank.” Amen, Matt Maher!
Jesus said, “Because I live, you also will live.” John 14:19 He also said, ” I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Until we trust in Christ, we are dying in our sin – the book of Romans says “the wages of sin is death”. When we place our trust in Christ, he redeems us, restores us, and gives us new life in Him – eternal life! I pray that you have abundant life in Jesus Christ!
