27 Oct

God said to Moses, “I Am Who I Am.”

“I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious,
and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion.”

Then the LORD passed by in front of him and proclaimed,
“The LORD, the LORD God,
compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth;
who keeps lovingkindness for thousands,
who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin;
yet He will be no means leave the guilty unpunished,
visiting the iniquity of fathers
on the children and on the grandchildren
to the third and fourth generation.”

Then David the king went in and sat before the LORD, and he said,
Who am I, O Lord GOD, and what is my house,
that You have brought me this far?”

Thus says the LORD God of Israel,
It is I who anointed you king over Israel
and it is I who delivered you from the hand of Saul.
I also gave you your master’s house and your master’s wives into your care,
and I gave you the house of Israel and Judah;
and if that had been too little,
I would have added to you many more things like these!”

So David blessed the LORD in the sight of all the assembly; and David said,
“Blessed are You, O LORD God of Israel our father, forever and ever.”
“But who am I and who are my people
that we should be able to offer as generously as this?
For all things come from you, and from Your hand we have given You.”

Who are you, O man, who answers back to God?”
Who are you who judge your neighbor?”

“I am the least of the apostles.”
“The very least of all saints.”
“Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners,
among whom I am foremost of all.”

“I have been crucified with Christ;
and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.”
“By the grace of God I am what I am.”
“I labored even more than all of them,
yet not I, but the grace of God with me.”
