Those People

I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15, NLT

We are those people. You know the ones. We are those people who go to that recovery group each week. We are those people who have a past. We are the people who never seemed to fit in, not even in church. You know who we are. We’re the people who are just like everyone else. The only difference is we are the people who know we are broken and in desperate need of Christ as our Savior.

We are the people who Christ sought out. We are that hundredth sheep that Christ left the ninety nine to go find. We are the ones who came from broken homes and dysfunctional families. We are the people who are just like the ones Christ chose to be His disciples. Our past lives were a mess, but that makes us uniquely qualified to reach a lost and hurting world.

We are those people. You know the ones. We are the people Christ loved so much that He went to the cross to die for us. Even when we were at our worst, Christ loved us. And because of His love for us, we get to be a part of something amazing. We are now a part of a community of believers who at one time felt like outcasts, but now know they belong.

Written by James Miller

Father God, thank You for my past. May my past always be used to glorify You. Thank You for loving me through my worst of days. You loved me enough to allow Your Son to die for me. You brought me out of a pit and put me on solid ground. My life is a testament of Your mercy and glory. Amen.
