Upward: Unworthy ≠ Worthless

(sermon begins at 16:20)

Matthew 25:31-46.  To feel unworthy in God’s matchless grace is not the same as being worthless. Being open to God’s correction is His intention when we feel sorrow or disappointment in ourselves. Are we ready to respond to His invitation to live a new life and walking in HIs ways, not ours? How can be a person that shows mercy at the same time not feeling mercy? Confession is more like a profession to be open to His priorities,  This message in Matthew from Jesus is about priorities. Our compassion, forgiveness, serving moves outward and begins with those closest to you. And then with those of the faith, those who are following Jesus. The world is watching. How do we treat those who are to be loving each other? Is our witness credible?

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Matthew 25:40
