Christian CCM band MercyMe’s newest album Welcome to the New reached the No. 1 spot on iTunes Christian sales and SoundScan charts all while single “Greater” reached the top 5 on Christian radio.
Lead singer Bart Millard said in a press release, “At 41-years-old, I feel like I am just starting to grasp who I am in Christ,” adding, “I grew up in a somewhat legalistic environment where the harder you try, the better God likes you.
“It was about two years ago a dear friend of mine reminded me I cannot do enough great things to make Christ love me more than He already does. Not to mention, I can’t sabotage this relationship and be taken from His hand,” He continued, “In other words, all the work was truly done on the cross and I cannot mess it up! This is not a new season in my life, it is my life! Everything has changed from this point on, and I want to tell this to anyone who will listen and be the first to welcome them to the new!”
