Behind The New Single “What A Savior”
The song “What A Savior” probably is one my favorite songs on this new CD. Part of it is just my growing understanding of knowing what it means to need a savior. I became a Christian when I was about 10 years old, so that was quite a while back. And I remember hearing about needing Jesus to be my Lord and savior. But it was harder as an adult to understand “What does that mean on a daily basis?”
I think the more I’ve grown in my faith, the more I’ve understood the depths of my sin and realized that my need for a savior really is a daily thing. Every morning I wake up having to come to terms with the fact that I can’t please God on my own, and I need Jesus every day. In this song there is a line that says, “He stood in my place, taking my shame upon his shoulders.” And I love when I get to sing that because it’s a line that I get to glory in. Jesus is that perfect savior that I could never be, and it’s something that I never get tired of singing about.
