Please read Psalm 8.
Psalm 8:4 Then I ask, ‘Why do You care about us humans? Why are You concerned for us weaklings?’
The pronoun “I” on the verse refers to David. He wrote Psalm 8 expressing his praise how wonderful the name of the Lord is. He said Let Your glory be seen in the heavens above. Thus, David has witnessed the goodness of the Lord.
What strikes me most is in Psalm 8:4, David asked the Lord in wonder, why do God still cares for us humans even if we are all unworthy and we are all sinners. David was simply curious and he wanted to know more about God.
Well, I agree with David. I wonder why God chose to send His only begotten son just to save us from death, when we don’t deserved the grace. For humans, no person would dare to give love unless someone will love the person back. Aren’t we? But it is so different with God, why the heck He cares for us when we don’t care anything about Him at all or that much. That always leaves me in wonder.
Until I sing this song from Casting Crowns Who Am I, I finally found the answers to the question. Mark Hall, the lead vocalist of Casting Crowns, also have similar questions like that from David. The lyrics of Who Am I…
Who Am I?
That the Lord of all the earth.
Would care to know my name?
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who Am I?
That the bright of morning star.
Would choose to light the way.
From my ever wandering heart.
Just like David and Mark Hall, I also have the same feeling. Why me, Lord? I am just a poor reflection. Why is it that You called me? But then, Casting Crowns helped me find the answer.
Not because of who I am
But because of what You’ve done
Not because of what I’ve done
But because of who You are.
And I did find the answer. It’s not about How could You love me but how could I love You. He does care for us even if we don’t care Him back because He is love. God is love. And we know that, the fact that He gave His only Son just for us. (John 3:16) And now, I reminded myself again, that God is love.
And that is so amazing.
