3At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another.
4But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared,
5he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
6whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
At one time, I were a fool.
At one time, I was stubborn.
At one time, I was deceived.
At one time, I were a slave.
Am I still what I am at one time? Ask me and I would say, yes and no.
Yes, because I still think I am, with the sin I have.
No, because I think I have changed for whom I am.
Things happen and times zoom through our life, then only we realise that , we are fools, stubborn, rebellious, naive and stupid enough to not realise the weaknesses that we have.
Once, we are a weak person, saved by God himself.
Now, we are still a weak and sinful person, but with God's grace, we were saved.
Sometimes I ask myself, do I listen to what God want to say to me?
Or I just choose to harden my heart and close my ears...
No matter how old I am, changes is always there. Whether is it a change for God or a change for our own desires, that will determine our life. A life with God and a life by God.
