Prove Worthy of Him


Matthew 10:38 declares “And whoever doesn’t take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.”  Jesus challenges us to demonstrate that we have not let Him suffer and die on our behalf in vain.  When we so disdain His sacrifice for us that we never take up our cross and follow Him, we are essentially proving that we are unworthy of such Amazing Grace.  On the contrary, when the chiefest of sinners accepts the sacrifice of Christ as the full and complete propitiation for his sins, then chooses to follow Christ no matter how heavy the load, such a person demonstrates that Christ indeed paid the debt of a soul highly valued of God!  Let each of us so live, then, that our lives demonstrate that God’s love toward us is not in vain.  Let us boldly and faithfully take up our cross and follow Him always, even to the very ends of the earth!
