I am not worthy to receive the love and power of the cross.
This is what I have been telling myself until... today.
I am nearly 31 years old. I chose to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ about four years ago.
I was not worthy to receive his forgiveness, but it was ransomed to me through the blood of Jesus.
I accepted the gift of forgiveness and a new life was started.
The past four years have been good, not trouble-free but good non-the-less.
However, as I was listening to the radio on my drive to work a thought came into my mind.
"I am not worthy of God's love. No. I was not worthy but now I am worthy. God has made me worthy through the ransomed blood of Christ and with the power of the Holy Spirit!
I am worthy!"
Wow! What a revelation! Thank you Jesus!
As I mentioned, the past four years have been good, but I was living under the impression of "unworthy."
How would the past four years have been if I would have known, believed, trusted that I am worthy of God's love, grace, mercy, strength and power?!
I don't know.
Now, what will the coming years be like with this revelation and understanding?!
I. Don't. Know.
I do know they will be more blessed, more abundant, more joy filled than I will ever be able to fathom.
Not to say there won't be struggle, pain and or trouble.
No, there will be all of those but more so there will be Hope.
Don't get me wrong, there has been hope but it was hope of desperation.
This new hope, which I am still wrapping my head around, I believe will be a hope of joy, acceptance, love, and un-describable power!
Now, I ask you, which hope are you going to be living with this coming year?
There is life in Jesus.
Which life are you going to choose?
Hope of Desperation (I am not worthy)
Hope of abundant joy, acceptance, love, and un-describable power! (I was not worthy)
