The title of this blog could also be walking with Jesus and coming to God. I hope this does not come to you as arrogance because as Christians we have to walk in the light or walk with Jesus.
I got somewhat troubled today because when I read Matthew chapter 23 of the Bible which talked about scribes and PhariseesI thought some verses describe me. I asked myself am I going to hell ?Is my Christianity in vain, am I a hypocrite ? Once again I had my soul searching and silently prayed Lord cleanse me .
I heard a preacher said before that when we get closer to God, the more we will see our unworthiness. But is it not Romans 8:1 says there is no more condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.But is seeing our unworthiness a form of condemnation ? I believe the answer is no, seeing our unworthiness is seeing reality but not meant to condemn but for us to ask for help.
Another explanation is just like when we see a beautiful product at first glance but when we take a closer look or examine it we start noticing some flaws, just like our life. Just us we overcome some sins through the help of the Holy Spirit and as we journey in this life we see some more sins or imperfections or hidden aspects in our life.
My journey is not over yet but the Lord Jesus will walk with us and teach us and carry us along the way.How about you ? I hope this blog encourages you not to give up because Jesus will help us in our walk and pick us up when we fall.
I love your blog. When I realized how unworthy I am, that did two things.......forced me to rely on Jesus......not myself. And not to judge other's actions. How can I judge, when at some point I've done the very same things? Romans 2:21-22 pretty much says the same thing. How can we preach not to do the same things we've done? I can't and won't. I will however, say that when I renew my mind and keep my thoughts on Christ I sin a lot less. I will also say that sin opens a door for the devil and when we do fall, we must repent (stop doing it) and slam the door in the devils' face. Recognizing that I am unworthy is essential in my walk with Christ. I don't condemn myself by this, for I recognize that Christ doesn't condemn, but makes me righteous through Him!
