I am second.- a sinner saved by grace and hopeful about my future because Christ did for me what I could never do for myself. He is first.
The first “I am second” video that I ever saw was in church. It was the segment by Brian “Head” Welch (of the band “Korn”) and it rocked me to my core. On the surface, he and I have almost nothing in common, but less than one layer down, we hurt the same.
When I got home that day, I went to the website, iamsecond.com, and watched five videos. Over the next few days, I watched all the others. Some of the featured people are household names, some are everyday folks you pass on the street. The great levelers of addictions, depression, spiritual emptiness, abuse survival and voids of all kinds united them for this project. Faith in God unites them in redemption and a second chance at a life devoted to something bigger than themselves.
Many people say that the very existence of God is void, and some say he exists, but has turned his back on the world.
But I say what Whispering Danny says in his i am second video:
I cannot deny something that has revealed itself to be true to me.
Some of the best things life has to offer make no sense, and some things that make no sense offer life, revealed to the subjects of the video project to be true.
I am second, too.
