12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

As I was driving my family today, a thought occurred to me. Where would I be without Jesus? If he had not been the ultimate sacrifice, the path would have never been paved. I realize now that without him, I would never have the eternal life waiting for me. I would never be worthy to stand before the thrown of God. I would be unworthy of the love and grace that he brought to us. So, where would I be without Jesus? I never want to find out.
