I am a sinner. I am a slave. I am blind. I am an orphan with no home. I am a law breaker. I am an adulterer. I am a feminist Eve, a jealous Rachel, a selfish Jonah. I am a liar. I envy, I steal, I hate. I am depraved.
I am destined to hell.
But then there's Jesus.
I have been crucified with Christ and it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave His life for me.
While I was still an orphan, Christ became a substitute orphan for me. Though He was God's son, He took on the humiliation of a slave and the horror of death.
Once I was blind but now I see....
Jesus, Thank You!
