Today’s song comes from the Christian Back Street Boys but a more mellow version. Beyond the Blue combines the smooth rhythm of blues with pop. When I listened to I Know You Know for the first time in years, a conversation from the Bible came to my mind. Jesus was having a conversation with a Pharisee when Nicodemus becomes sarcastic, triggering Jesus to share a famous passage from the Bible.
Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter his mother’s womb again and be born? – John 3:3-4
The song I Know You Know is like a conversation with a stubborn friend. They know you’re right, but don’t want to admit it. The lyrics of I Know You Know suggests that an individual knows the truth about God but is afraid to verbalize it. If you want to live your life beyond the blue of depression, boldly proclaim that Jesus is Lord, Romans 10:9-11.
