The Message-I’m Not Worthy I Know It

 I spent most of my life doing what I wanted to do, never giving a second thought to what God may want me to do. I sinned. I lived in the world, not giving spiritual things a chance. I’m not worthy. I know it.

 It doesn’t matter in Jesus’ eyes. Though my sins were like scarlet, He has made me white as snow. He has washed all my sins away, and has given me a new nature. God’s nature is inside me, changing me to be more like Jesus. It is a process. It takes time. Little by little, glory to glory, I’m changing to become more like Jesus. I want to walk the walk, and talk the talk that Jesus did.

 There will come a day (Glory is just around the corner), when I will kneel before Him, and His work in me will be completed. Until then I will hold on to Him, and pray that He keep on changing me to be more like Jesus. When I stumble and fall He will be there to pick me up. When I take a wrong path, He will show me the right way to go. I’m not worthy. I know it.

His Word is my daily bread. I love reading the Bible. If I go 2 days without reading it, my soul knows it. I feel it. I don’t like that feeling, and I get right back to it. It comforts me. The Bible is our guide on how to live on the earth, and teaches you all about the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Read God’s Word, and speak it out loud. Let His Words be heard with your ears, flow over your tongue, and settle in your heart and mind. It will give you strength, and wisdom to make good decisions. You need the Word of God to grow, and mature spiritually.

I look back a few years ago when I was a baby Christian, and I can see many improvements He has made in me (there’s many more needed). I don’t see things the same way. I don’t hear the same way. I don’t talk the same way. I don’t think the same way. My faith, joy, and love have increased. My relationship with the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit has become my priority, the center of my life. The Holy Spirit convicts me when I have done something not pleasing to God. He does it so I will know to change that action, or speech, or whatever it is. I’m not worthy. I know it.

People want to label you with everything you’ve done wrong, but if you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, you’re already labeled, forgiven, and redeemed. It doesn’t matter what you have done in your past. You are forgiven. If you fall and go back to your old ways, repent. You will be forgiven.

The Lord will never leave you, never forsake you. He’s there when you are happy or sad. He will not leave you when you go to sleep, when you go to work, when you are hurting, when you wake up, when you are lonely. When you are at the end of life, He’s there, when all others leave you, He’s there. When your family has thrown you aside, He’s there. He’s always there. He lives inside of us through the Holy Spirit. After decades of sin, I’m not worthy. I know it.

I will move closer and closer to Jesus. I will love the Lord God with all my heart, with all my soul, as I thank and praise Him, as I read His Word.  I’m waiting on Him to perfect all things in me, and bring me to heaven to spend eternity with Him.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

So what if I’m not worthy, Jesus loves me.

God Bless. Heal the broken-hearted, bind up all their wounds.
