Story Behind the Song, GREATER

Written by Laura Kaczor
Produced by Ian Eskelin

GREATER was written as a prayer to the Lord asking Him to "BECOME GREATER" in me. As we surrender our lives to the Lord Jesus Christ, our prayer is the same as John the Baptist in John 3:30, "He must increase and I must decrease." "Jesus, Savior become GREATER." The more our spirits are yielded to Him, He will do what we cannot do ourselves. Jesus will live in us as we surrender every area of our lives. This has been one area at a time for me. That is sanctification. But it is a daily walk to lay down our lives, "Every dream, I lay it down until your will alone is all that's found. Take my life, take all of me, until more of You is what I seek."

I also want to reflect on Proverbs 18:21, "Death and life are in the power of our tongue." "When I speak, be in EVERY word and may my life reveal you to the world. Let your praise be always on my lips, Jesus Savior become GREATER." This is not just on Sunday, it is every day and in every word, and yes, even on social media and in the hidden times when we speak to people. We can speak life or death by our words. Our only hope is, "Christ in me, the hope of glory." Col. 1:27. Only when people see Him in us will they listen to our words about Him. May we all be convicted that the world is watching and that our witness depends upon our daily acts of love and kindness and serving others and every word that we speak.

More of You and less of me
Only more of You Jesus
Fill this place that is my heart
Until it overflows with all You are

And when I speak be in every word
And may my life reveal You to the world
And let Your praise be ever on my lips
Oh Jesus, Savior, become greater

Every dream
I lay it down until Your will alone is all that’s found
Oh take my life, take all of me
‘Cause only more of You is what I seek

And when I speak be in every word
And may my life reveal You to the world
And let Your praise be ever on my lips
Oh Jesus, Savior, become greater

And when I speak be in every word
And may my life reveal You to the world
And let Your praise be ever on my lips
Oh Jesus, Savior, become greater

Jesus, Savior, become greater
Jesus, Savior, become greater
