2 Timothy 1:9 “who [God] has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,”
It’s not about me;
it’s not about me.
God didn’t save me because of me; He saved me and called me to a holy life because of His purpose. His grace was given to me, not as a response to something I had done, but as His personal choice for His reasons and for His glory.
And, Lord, I still can’t wrap my brain around this; Your decision was made before the beginning of time. You chose me, You extended grace, You called me, You made the way of salvation as an act of Your will for Your own purpose. Not a reaction; a decision.
Lord, how can my response to You be anything less than Yes, Lord; I will follow You?
