Hillsong Worship wrote a song that is not only played often of JOY99, but sung in many churches worldwide. Here’s Hillsong Worship to share the story behind the song
This song speaks of an incredible truth that has the power to remind us that we are, indeed, a child of God. That we are chosen, not forsaken. God doesn’t owe us any of this. He does it because HE loves us. We are free, because the Son has set us free! We are who HE says we are!
“The theme of the song is from John 8 which is you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. Jesus says, ‘who the son sets free, is free indeed.’ It’s a real declaration of identity. When I introduced this song into our church I read John 8, the scripture this song is based on. It talks about how a slave has no place in the family, but once we’ve been brought into the family then we have this identity as part of God’s family and that identity is an identity of freedom.”
