I love you God.
But you love me so much more.
It doesn’t make sense. I mean, God you deserve to be loved.
But you love me anyway.
Hey! What are you doing reading an excerpt from my morning prayer? Well, I guess I was the one who typed it there!
Let’s look at some words from John the Baptist, “I baptize with water those who repent of their sins and turn to God. But someone is coming soon who is greater than I am—so much greater that I’m not worthy even to be his slave and carry his sandals” (Matthew 3:11).
It’s okay, John the Baptist. I’m Unworthy too.
John had become comfortable in his calling. People just came to be baptized, and he did it. The men came. The women came. The young and old. Jesus came—whoa, wait a minute!
“’I am the one who needs to be baptized by you,’ he said, ‘so why are you coming to me?’” (V. 14).
"But Jesus said, 'It should be done, for we must carry out all that God requires.' So John agreed to baptize him” (V. 15).
Jesus knows we are all unworthy of his love. That’s why he came to earth and died in our place. He was sinless, spotless, perfect, amazing, and WORTHY. But he loved us anyway with amazing grace.
You see, just because we are unworthy doesn’t mean God refuses to use us to accomplish His will. Look at what God used John for!
God still uses the unworthy. God still loves the unworthy. Don’t let your “I’m not worthy…” keep you from God’s love and plan for your life.
