Over the past year I’ve written about 20 songs and rather than wait until I can afford to do a new album, I’ve decided to share them via some simple YouTube videos. Here’s the first of many to come.
This song was inspired by a kids book called, Guess How Much I Love You. We are all very familiar with this book in my family, but one of the lines always stuck out more than any other. “Guess how much I love you? I love you to the moon and back.”
I’ve always thought that was a cool line and it really paints a vivid picture of how much someone loves someone else. After all the moon and back is pretty far. But one day it dawned on me that there is a much more vivid example of an even greater love–the love that Jesus showed by leaving his heavenly throne, and willingly dying on a cross, paying the price for our sins, rising from the dead in victory, and ascending back into heaven. There is no greater love than that. “Guess how much God loves us? He loves us to the Cross and back.”
