After listening to Lecrae’s song “All I need is you” I personally immediately thought of it as a love song. But after listening to it repeatedly I understood its true content.
All I Need Is You: God, the love of God. Which is unchanging and unwavering no matter how undeserving or unloving I may be.
A lot of the viewers questioned whether or not the song was about his wife or God. But aren’t they one in the same? shouldn’t your love for your spouse mirror your love for God?
“No words for your awesomeness” translates to PSALMS 145:3 Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.
Your most important relationship is always the one you have with Christ. Your relationship with your spouse should be a direct reflection of your relationship with Christ.
* Unconditional love
Your relationship with God is detrimental to your relationship with one another. God is the backbone of your relationship, with him your relationship will flourish and persevere through anything.
All I need is You.
All I need is you Jesus Christ.
and with your unwavering and undying love, I understand the meaning of true love.
which provides me with an understanding so that I can provide this same love for my spouse.
So I wouldn’t call this clean secular music, but a blueprint for a relationship laid on a track. A relationship with God and a relationship with his woman.
Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church– for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery–but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
Love your spouse as God loves the Church, As you would love your own body. Nourish and care for it.
God’s love for us is the “Ultimate Love Story”. A love song would only be appropriate.
