How many times have we been offered things/opportunities by people we know, but have turned them down because we did not think we were worthy to receive such a generous offering? Maybe it was a ticket to an event, an offer to buy you a meal, or something else that meant a lot to you. Yes, we wanted to receive it, but declined because we did not feel “worthy” of such a kind gesture. Unfortunately, too many of us allow this king of reasoning to carry over to our spiritual live, as well.
In Luke 7:6 we read, “6 Then Jesus went with them. And when He was already not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to Him, saying to Him, “Lord, do not trouble Yourself, for I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof.” The centurion with the ill servant wanted Jesus to heal him, but didn’t think that he was worthy enough to have Jesus enter his house. Jesus healed the servant and commended the centurion for his great faith.
Maybe you are like the centurion. Based upon past or current sin, you do not feel worthy to invite the Lord into your heart. You want Him there, you need Him there, but you do not feel like you deserve it. Remember the centurion — It was his faith that Jesus was interested in, not whether or not he was worthy. We are all made worthy through Jesus Christ, He just wants us to have faith in that promise.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
