Biblical Phrases — You Are Worthy!

Day 2214: Another Friday already??? TGIF – Thank God I’m Forgiven!

Scripture: You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things; by Your will they exist, and came to be. Revelation 4:11  And they sang a new song, saying: You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because You were slain, and with Your blood You purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.  Revelation 5:9

Thoughts/questions: We are unworthy; He is worthy! That pretty much says it all.

Part of the definition of worthy is simply ‘good enough.’ That may seem so minimal, but after considering it a bit, it fits as it depends what you are good enough for. Good enough to do X, then you’re worthy to take on the task of doing X!

If you haven’t read Revelation 5 recently, it is well worth (yes, that was intentional!) the read, as Jesus is singled out as the only one in heaven or earth who was/is ‘good enough’ to do the required task. Yes, He is good enough!

Have you received Him as the One who is good enough to be your Savior and Lord? If not, do so today!

Suggested prayer: Dear Jesus, I am unworthy, only You are worthy . . .
