Worship leaders Pat Barrett and Dante Bowe recently collaborated on “Nothing/Something” as a challenge to love others with the love of Jesus.
Without love it all means nothing…
“In the end, what truly matters? We all want our lives to mean something,” shares Pat Barrett. “I think that’s why the message of this song hits me so hard. For me, it cuts through the noise of shallow, self-obsessed living and opens me up to a higher perspective. I don’t want to get to the end of my life and feel the sorrow of meaninglessness. It doesn’t have to be that way. Jesus presented a path to deep eternal joy and meaning rooted in divine love. And that message doesn’t have a shelf life. It’s timeless. And even more, it’s eternally significant. Writing and singing this song with Dante was such a powerful experience. For me, this song has been a beautiful confrontation to any message that promises soul fulfillment apart from love.”
“‘Nothing/Something is such a special song,” states Dante Bowe. “When Pat asked me to feature, I was honored. This song will stand as a constant reminder of the fact that we are all called to be like Jesus. Love is who Christ is. Without love, we wouldn’t be here. Without love, we wouldn’t have freedom. Without love, it all means nothing. With love, we can fulfill our purpose as people surrendered to the Lord. Love is the cause. With love, life is worth living.”
