Have you ever had someone tell you that you were not good enough because of:
- Something that you had done or failed to do - all sins are forgiven through His blood. That covers things done or should have been done.
- Where you were born - They did not like Jesus because He came from Nazareth, but that did not stop the plans that the Lord had for Him. Neither will it stop the plans that He has for you. The world thought that He was not good enough. "What good can come out of Nazareth? (John 1:45-46)
- The color of your skin - He died for all and He looks on the heart, not on the outside. (1 Samuel 16:7 KJV)
- Your socio-economic status, etc.? - The poor are always in His heart. (Matthew 25:37 and verse 44)
You just do what you can to live for Him. That means loving your fellowman and asking for forgiveness of your sins. He will take care of everything else. And remember, no one has the right to sit in judgment on another, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23 KJV)
Don't you let anybody, not even yourself, tell you that you are not good enough, for you were good enough for Jesus to love and die for and that is all that matters. Never forget what really matters. Here is a poem from W.O.W. created w.o.w. to remind you.
Doing What I Can, While I Can Because I Care,
Alma L. Stepping On Jones
It's Not About
It's not about the diamonds
Or about the rings
It's about the love of God and
The joy that His love brings.
It's not about houses, land
Or other acquired things
It's not about power such
As wielded by kings.
It's about living for God
And honoring His glory
It's about telling the world
The age old story
Of how Jesus died on that old tree
So that we could live with Him
Throughout all eternity.
