Worthy

Posted: December 06, 2017

Ironically, there are more verses in the Bible about someone who is NOT worthy than about someone who IS worthy (like John saying that he is not even worthy of untying Jesus' sandals).  Phillippians 1:27 says

"Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ."

Worthy does not mean perfect.  Worthy means excellent, upright, and honorable.  God doesn't expect us to be perfect, but He does call us to a high standard of living worthy of Him.  Do we take that command seriously?  

Jesus, You are the only One truly worthy, but I don't want to dismiss your command to live a life worthy of Your calling.  Help me to be an example in excellence, uprightness, and honor.  Amen!
