Who would I be?

  • I’ve heard songs and messages that ask the question “Who or where would I be if it had not been for the Lord on my side”. I actually asked myself this question today. And the answer is that I don’t know who I would be if I didn’t believe in God…if I didn’t believe that Christ died for our sins…if I didn’t believe that the Holy Spirit could dwell within me.

    I really don’t know. And honestly, I don’t think I want to know. Not because I’m a terrible person or I’ve had a terrible life. I just know – without a doubt – from looking at my life that God is real. I know how my life is when I do things on my own, and I know how it is when I really do my best to live in the Spirit. So yeah…I don’t want to know who I would be if God hadn’t kept His hand on me until I realized that I needed Him.

    I love the way Paul says it:

     “8and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born. 9 For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me. (1 Corinthians 15: 8-10, NIV)

    I don’t know ALL the details on who I would be without God, because He’s a God who loves anybody, reaches the unreachable and uses the least likely. He’s amazing.

    1. Amen! This great news to hear on palm Sunday. I am what I am through the grace of God who saw it fit to send His only Son to die for my sins

      Thank you Afi for this great word. God bless you.
