Who Am I?

Who am I that I should come before so great a God as You?  And yet you say to 'come boldly to the throne of grace'.  Hebrews 4:16.

Who am I that I a sinner in such need of Your grace, that I should expect to have my sins forgiven and such love extended to me?  And yet you say, 'If I confess my sins, You are faithful to forgive them'. 1 John 1:9.

Who am I?  I have been so unfaithful in everything pertaining to my Spiritual life, who am I that you should be so faithful to me?  And yet you say, 'God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His
Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.'  1 Corinthians 1:9.

Who am I, so unworthy to receive so many blessings at Your hand?  And yet you say 'Blessed be the God and Father of Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.'

Who am I that You should know me so well, that You would call me by my name when I am the least of these?  And yet You say, 'Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.."  Isaiah 43:1 last part.

Who am I that You would love me so very much as to send Your Son to die on such a cruel cross and suffer such agony for someone like me?  I am not worthy of such a sacrifice on my behalf.  And yet You say, 'that You sent Your Son to this world to die for whosoever, and that whosoever is me.  I don't understand so great a love as that.  That is in John 3:16.

Who am I that I should receive healing at Your hands, so many times, I am not worthy of such loving care, It's Jesus who is worthy, not me and yet, You say that, 'You sent Your word and healed them and delivered them from destruction,' and that is exactly what You have done for me.

Who am I to deserve all these things from You, I am not worthy at all, I feel so unworthy at times that I just sit in awe and wonder who I am to deserve these things?  I know for sure that I serve a loving Father and His Son who are so full of love for this human being that if it had been only just me, who needed saved, You still would have sent Jesus to save me.  What an awesome thought to think about.

Do you see yourself in any of these circumstances?  Surely, you must.  I find myself, just thinking about all these things and saying, 'who am I'.  I am still wondering and then I read this verse just now that tells me who I am. "Beloved now we are children of God." 1 John 3:2 first part.  I am a child of God, what more could I ask for.  You are a child of God.  That's who we are.  Grandma Joan.
