UNWORTHY, BUT CHOSEN

I Corinthians 15:9 NKJV "For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God."

Paul was a murderer! And he wasn't just a murderer, the people he killed and persecuted were children of God, members of the church! Yet God forgave him, called him, gave him countless revelations, used him to write many epistles in the holy Bible, revealed Himself to him, and enabled him to be the greatest apostle who ever lived! That's too much! If I were God, I may never have done that; but you see, that's the power of God's forgiveness and grace!

And how about Rahab. The lady was a prostitute, I mean a well-known one in Jericho before the Israelites captured it. Yet, she became an ancestor of Christ! Unbelievable, but true! What of Mary, from whom demons were cast out, she was became the first female evangelist after the resurrection of Jesus.

Listen to me, you might be feeling unworthy as a result of the sins you have committed until now, maybe you even did something wrong last night, but I need you to understand that if you decide right now to yield yourself to God, He can, and He will make something beautiful and great out of your life. Men may judge you and call you names, but when God forgives He also forgets. Once in Christ, you are no longer condemned! Hallelujah!
