Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/11/15

This week’s scripture is from Matthew:

Warfare Prayer“Lord, I am not worthy …”    (Matthew 8:8)

God is a holy God, and when we think upon the sins and transgressions He has forgiven us, we can feel so unworthy of Him and His love. The truth is we are unworthy of Him and His love, but we should rejoice for Christ is worthy and through His blood, death, and resurrection we receive His righteousness and we are made worthy in Christ.

We need never use our unworthiness to belittle ourselves before the Lord or believe He cannot love us, for He sees us through the blood of His son Jesus Christ and through Him we are redeemed and seen as worthy, worthy to be children of the Most High, worthy to partake in His sacrifice for us, worthy to be His possession, worthy to be loved by Him who loves us. God loves us.

May the love of God for you be a blessing to you.
