Everything that has happened to me in the past four years is a reflection of God’s faithfulness and goodness. It all stems to the fact and truth of His love, which I am not worthy to receive.
Paul perfectly captures this same sentiment in Acts 20:24.
I consider my life worth nothing to me.
My sinfulness rendered me dead, and in truth, I really have no life to claim as my own. All the things that I’m enjoying and experiencing right now are not of my own doing. In fact, I don’t even deserve any of these, because I’m merely a stain.
And yet, God is not only reassuring me that my sins are forgiven, but He is also using me to forward His purposes. Serving Him is really a privilege — not only in serving the church but serving with my whole life.
If anything, I want to echo Paul’s declaration:
I want to live my life to “finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.”
I am not worthy of this life and His love, but He freely gave them to me. All I can do is praise and thank Him, through my words and actions.
