Dear soul that feels unworthy of a Savior,
I won’t sit here and tell you to feel worthy.
Sometimes that is much easier said than believed.
And in this season of pretty pastel decorations and pictures of an empty tomb, you might be feeling like you have to get your emotions in order and simply celebrate.
But can I remind you of a great truth during this season of unworthiness you’re feeling?
Let’s take a little break from life for a moment and rest in Scripture – Mark 11:8-10 to be exact.
It’s the story of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a colt. The Bible tells us that, “Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest heaven!’”
And then, the same crowd only a few chapters later in Mark 15…
It says in verses 12-14, “’What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?’ Pilate asked them. ‘Crucify him!’ they shouted. ‘Why? What crime has he committed?’ asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, ‘Crucify him!’”
A crowd that first yelled ‘Hosanna!’ and is now yelling ‘Crucify him!’
And there’s Jesus in their midst.
He kept moving slowly toward the cross through it all.
His mission didn’t end because the hearts of those He loved changed.
His purpose wasn’t thwarted because the world no longer shouted “Hosanna!”
His grace didn’t die because those around Him swayed in their love.
No. Rather, he kept moving toward the cross – slowly, thoughtfully, with purpose.Jesus never stopped moving toward the cross in order to make you worthy. Click To Tweet
Walk with me to Satisfaction with Christ, where I continue to share the worth we have in Christ. This is important, dear friend. Fight to believe that grace is real – that you have a worthy Savior!
Worth & identity are rooted in Christ. If you’re not believing that in the day-to-day, I encourage you to seek truth. This post is all about our identity in Christ. Let it be the anthem of your heart!
