Responsibilities of the Church 13: A Song for the Changed Heart

Responsibilities of the Church Day 13 – A Song for the Changed Heart

“The In Between” by Matt Maher 

Written by Matt Maher and Judah Akers

(Released 2022)

This is a song that was written, recorded, and released in partnership with the television show “The Chosen.”  Regardless of your opinion of the show, this song stands on its own merits. I’ve always enjoyed Matt Maher’s voice, and this one really stretches his upper register in a good way. The song uses the idea of Jesus as our Mediator in this way: Who I was and who I will forever be have been changed by Jesus. I was lost in my sins, heading to an eternity away from God; now I am forgiven, saved, and promised a home in Heaven with Him forever. And it’s all because of a Mediator—the One who came between me and God and changed my eternity. 

“The In Between” 

From death to life, from darkness to a shine
From fear to a peace I can’t explain
From doubts to a hope, holding on and letting go
Of all the empty promises of shame
This is my song

Chorus
I was one way but now I am different
There was a clear change in a Holy collision
Who I was and who I’ll forever be
And He was the in between

From orphan to Your child, from a stone to running wild
From a seed in the ground to breaking out
From a mess to a mess
A blessing to a blessing
A sea of failures bearing testimony
This is my song

Love stretched out on a tree screaming out
So that I could say You’ve not forsaken me
You’re the first and the last, my future and my past
Who I was and who I will forever be
You are the in between
