Nearly a decade since I Can Only Imagine, multiplatinum-selling supergroup MercyMe dare to imagine the world as it should be in their brand new release, The Generous Mr. Lovewell.
The Generous Mr. Lovewell fuses MercyMe fundamentals: heartprovoking lyrics, powerful worship anthems, ballads and pounding, infectious melodies – with the simplest, yet greatest mandate of our lives as Christ followers: what it means to love like Jesus.
“It almost goes without saying that we should love generously, that we should love like Jesus,” says Mike Scheuchzer of MercyMe. “But does it? Does hearing it make it real?
“It’s so easy for us to live in our own little self-absorbed bubbles. We forget that above anything else we are called to love our neighbours, to reach out, to engage even the unlovable around us. It’s not an option if we really want to be like Christ.
The Generous Mr. Lovewell is a picture of the change we want to see in our own lives. Without love like this, everything we do, everything we are, is in vain.”
