If we believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, we have all we need in life. The capacity of obtaining things, blessing our families and progressing forward into an abundant future is within our grasp because God is with us always. In Luke 17:20-21 we read: “Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.” The Kingdom of God is not an artifact or something we can identify through the senses; it is the the Spirit of God inside us. In another passage we are referred to as “this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” (2 Cor. 4:7) We have power within to help us accomplish what God asks us to accomplish. That power is God inside us, directing us and guiding us if we let him. Fianlly, we turn to Matthew 5:13, “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.” These Bible verses are given to us to counteract the popular and erroneous notion that “we are not good enough” or we “are not worthy.” In fact, we are good enough; we have all we need, we just have to apply that knowledge and live life from those Biblical premises. Common sense will also tell us if we life a life of unrepentant sin, then we will feel unworthy. That feeling of worthlessness will cloud our daily work. If that is happening, then I encourage you to confess your sin and move forward in faith. In other words, we need to live a life of faith and hope for these verses to come alive (Luke 24: 30-32). And it all starts with faith in Jesus Christ. Do you believe in Him today? If not, I ask you to invite Him into your life now.
