Earlier this week, Aodhan King joined Johnny Raze on YouTube channel Worship Together for a segment called New Song Cafe. The two discussed the story behind Hillsong Young and Free’s new single, ‘Heart of God.’
When Jonas Myron and King sat down together in Los Angeles to write the song, they turned to Luke 15:11— the story of the prodigal son.
“It’s God’s kindness that leads us to repentance,” Aodhan said. “It’s not God thumping his fists around. It’s his kindness, compassion and love towards us.”
King also discusses how to lead this song in a big worship set, as well as a smaller acoustic setting.
