"For God so loved the world that God gave God's one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life." - John 3:16

Sometimes, we all struggle to believe in our own worthiness. We see flaws and reason that we’re undeserving of any good because of our bad. Are we really worthy of love and care when we don't always return every call or every favor? Are we really worthy of laughter when we may have caused others tears and sadness? Are we really worthy of spiritual redemption when we’ve had so many missteps in the process of finding it? In the depths of our doubt, the Spirit whispers a reminder. Who are we to question our worthiness when we’ve already been declared worthy by God? Before we took our first breath, God loved who we were, who we are now, and who we will become. God's call for us is to embrace a spiritually abundant life, despite our shortcomings. Thankfully, our worthiness isn't something we get to decide. Worth isn't some kind of currency exchange of good or bad deeds, where we can try to make up for the things we aren’t or perhaps will never be. Heaven already thought we were worth saving. Thank God that makes us worthy enough.

Prayer: When I question my worth, I'm thankful that through Jesus Christ, I've already been given my answer.  Amen
