You can be free.
We live in a culture overwhelmed with false perceptions of what freedom truly is. Most of us, bound by opinions , follow people's thoughts on how they think we should talk,dress and live while we never really find freedom. A freedom that can only be found in one place. Jesus. The never ending weight of societies view on success can leave us paralyzed & strip us of our joy and motivation. Why settle for low standards if we are made in the image of God and for God? (Gen. 1:27). As seen today, manhood is under a constant onslaught and given distorted view from its purposes. Culture has taught us that being a man is about getting money, living reckless, mistreating women. This shallow & vain outlook leaves us broken and empty. "Trying to fill a void that the soul has" (a lyric from the song) stresses that none of these earthly things can satisfy the human heart, only the one who created it can. The heart of the song wants to resonate the fact we can be free, no longer bound by these things. We can have the chains broken, our eyes opened & our hearts filled. We were made to be free, let's start living like it.
"We need the gospel. We need it more than books. More than studies. More than groups. We need the life giving, identity establishing, purpose defining gospel of Jesus Christ."
