Are You Worthy
Revelation 5:9-10; And now they sing a new song. “It is fitting that you should be the One to take the book and break its seals; Because you have been offered in sacrifice, and have purchased for God with Your own blood Some out of every tribe and language and
People and nation, and have forged them into a Kingdom to be priests to our God, and
They reign over the earth.”
Many people feel unworthy and have no joy in their salvation. Are we really unworthy? God does not think so. We are worthy of God’s love for us. God arranged to purchase each of us from sin and death. He is not willing that any should perish. What was the ransom price to save us from sin and death? The price was the death and shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ. The ultimate price was paid for each and every one of us. Jesus went to the cross willingly to pay the price for us. Christ’s suffering, death and the shedding of his blood paid for our sins and gave us spiritual and physical healing. We are worthy. God has made it so. Your salvation cost the ultimate ransom, but it is freely given to you as a gift. ENJOY it.
Prayer: Father; forgive us for not fully enjoying our salvation. Allow us to grow in our understanding of Your mighty works and deeds. Help us to share the glory of Your majesty and the wonder of Your free gift, salvation. Let us always be mindful of the cost of our salvation and be grateful for it. Forgive us of our lack of faith and continue to encourage each of us in our daily walk with You. Bless our nation and restore our lost values. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
