We believe this song has a much deeper meaning and it is all about Salvation.
Salvation means we are delivered. We are saved. Though humanity is subject to the eternal consequences of sin, God has given us a way out through the sacrifice of His only Son, Jesus.
Salvation is God’s gift to save us from eternal death.
Ever since the beginning of the earth, humans have chosen to disobey. But God, in His great love, chose to redeem us. We were doomed to destruction. But God gave His Son “that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16, NKJV).
The sacrifice of Jesus Christ made our salvation possible. He gave His perfect life to make a way for us to be saved. Salvation satisfies the demands of God’s Law and His wrath against sin while at the same time showing God’s love for sinners.
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Roman 5:8, NKJV).
