This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief (1 Timothy 1:15).

Have you ever thought about why Jesus would come, be born among us, and then give His life on a cruel cross for you? I have. God loves me, and you, far more than we can imagine. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). <Jesus Christ> Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross (Phil 2:6-8).

Nothing that I had or may have would be sufficient to merit His love or to gain His salvation. It is only through His loving grace that I can accept His free gift ( Eph 2:8-9). Who am I that I should receive eternal life? I can only point to Christ’s love me. But God commendeth his love toward us (me), in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (me) (Rom 5:8).

We Christians should serve God, not out of responsibility but love. We love him, because he first loved us (1 John 4:19). Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me (Matt 16:24). Read more about this in Lay Them Down.

When I think of how He came so far from glory,Came to dwell among the lowly such as I,To suffer shame and such disgraceOn Mount Calvary take my place,Then I ask myself this questionWho am I?

Chorus: Who am I that The King would bleed and die for?Who am I that He would pray not my will, thine Lord?The answer I may never know,Why He ever loved me so.But to that old rugged cross He’d goFor who am I?

When I’m reminded of His wordsI’ll leave Him never.If you’ll be true I’ll give to you life forever.Oh I wonder what I could have doneTo deserve God’s only Son,To fight my battles until they’re wonFor who am I?
