As a Christian, I believe as I get closer to God I become more acquainted with the fact that I’m not. Isaiah said woe was he, a man of unclean lips when he beheld God’s glory in Isaiah 6. Peter cried out to depart from Jesus because he was a sinful man after Jesus’ miraculous work in Luke 5. To better prove the point of realizing who we are in light of God and His ever-increasing presence in our lives is to look to the apostle Paul who said in 1 Corinthians 15 that he was the least of all the apostles. And later in life wrote in Ephesians 3 that he was the least of all saints. Finally, at the end of his life, sitting in a dungeon before he was to have his head chopped off, he penned some words that could have said anything about his status or well-being but instead wrote that Christ came into the world to save sinners among whom he was the chief of all. I believe that’s the correct progression of thought the closer we get to the Eternal and the things of God.
