Matt Maher tells how his version of "Because He Lives" came to be. Matt noted, "Everything we do as Christians comes because of the resurrection. Because Jesus lives we therefore have life. This song is a continuation of the ministry of unifying the Church. We're alive because He lives."
The song, "Because He lives" from the Matt Maher album titled: "Saints and Sinners," is a celebration of the core of Christian belief. Because He (Jesus) lives...all people have hope to reach beyond the brokenness that makes daily living difficult. This is an anthem of freedom in Christ.

Ardent love, no matter what
