Are You Unworthy? So am I.

Jesus really is the only One worthy in this world to save us and deliver us from our fallen nature.  I know what it is like to feel so unworthy of His love and mercy.  It is hard to fathom such love that He has for us that He would accept being crucified on a cruel cross so that we could have eternal life with Him.  What suffering He went through just for me, if I had been the only one, He would have died just for me.  Can you fathom that, no wonder we feel so unworthy.  We really are unworthy, but He died to make us worthy of eternal life with Him.

John the Baptist felt so unworthy of Him that he said he wasn't worthy to even loose His sandal straps. What a preacher John was and yet he felt he was unworthy of the love and mercy shown to him to be the forerunner of Christ.  John 1:27.  So it is natural for us to feel unworthy, we live in a sinful world and Jesus was without sin and we can by His grace and mercy live that way too, if we choose too, we are suppose to live in this world but not be of this world.

We can only do it by God's grace and the Worthiness of Jesus to forgive us and cleanse us from the sin in our lives.  Can you understand all that?  Neither can I.  Our understanding of what He has done for us will grow as we grow in grace and knowledge of what He has done for us.  And we can only do that by staying in His presence day by day.
Are you unworthy?  Yes,  Am I unworthy?  Yes, but someday we will stand in His presence in His eternal kingdom worthy of being there because of His worthiness.  He was the only One worthy to die for our sins, are you willing to accept such a sacrifice?  We have to prove our worthiness here and allow Him to live in and for us so we will be worthy to live with Him forever.  Is it hard to do that? Yes, but only because we choose to live without Him.  If we choose to live with Him, remember, He says, 'His yoke is easy and His burden is light'.  So let's let Him carry our burdens and make us ready to live with Him who is our worthiness.  Grandma Joan
