You are worthy

As I sat in church for Easter Sunday, I was overwhelmed with God’s love for
me. I sat in awe of the fact that I am made worthy by His love-His
sacrifice.

Many of us walk around feeling unworthy. We have allowed the stress of
life, the lies others speak about us or to us, the negative thoughts we tell
ourselves, our fears, our guilt and so many other life situations to keep us
in a state of striving and struggling.

But guess what? We don’t need to try harder. I already know tomorrow, I
will make mistakes. I quite possibly will utter a curse word under my
breath that matches the new puppy’s present on the kitchen floor. I may
forget a child’s dentist appointment, someone’s birthday or not have my
dinner menu planned out. Hey, it could be a day where I secretly think,
“Really, do they have to eat again?” But, I am still worthy.

I am worthy because by grace through faith, I have trusted and accepted
Jesus as my Savior. He paid the price for my unworthiness. Nothing can
keep me from the love of Christ.

So often we walk around trying to be a better person and then, maybe we will
feel worthy, be worthy. We strive so hard to get the muck and the mire of
life’s stains washed from our hearts and minds. But scrub away, we will
never, ever feel like we are good enough.

And we don’t have to be good enough. The One who is truly good – Jesus, the
sacrificial Lamb -paid the price, and He lives! Rest in Him. Take your
guilt, your fears, your inadequacies and sit down at His feet.

Worthy is the Lamb, and in Him you are worthy.

  1. At church, out of the same-old-same-old Easter story (sorry), I did glean something new. The pastor said you can’t wait until you are good enough to go to God because we will always be sinners. I like that message – don’t wait.
