I have some of my own thoughts on this, but feel too full to speak today —
“In life, we end up having to empty ourselves to achieve that which is beautiful,” Matt Maher says.
“If you don’t, you never really get made beautiful. It’s a weird dichotomy, especially in the world we live in because there’s so much focus on beauty.
“The whole idea of having to empty one’s self to achieve beauty is completely counter cultural, but that’s what happens — marriage, service of the poor, sharing the beauty of the gospel.
“That’s what Christ calls us to do, and I hope these songs will help inspire people to follow Jesus in that way.”
