I’m not yet ready. Just give me a little more time to fix myself up. Church is not for people like me. How many times have you heard those statements from people you have invited to give their lives to Jesus or to come to church? Maybe you have even said something along those lines to yourself when you have felt God calling you. I know there are times where we all feel like we are not good enough – not holy enough, and then God pulls us back to Him with the power of his love and the message of His grace.
We sometimes need to be reminded that our heavenly father wants us to come to Him just as we are. Jesus never said first clean yourself up before you come to me. He never said he was looking for perfect people. But God said “he chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; He chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong” – 1 Corinthians 1:27. That means that God wants to use us in our mess – he wants to use you in your weakness because that’s when His strength is made perfect in you.
You may be feeling like you’re not good enough to be used by God today. You may be broken. You may feel dirty. Someone might have given you the impression that you first need to pull yourself together before you can approach His throne. It does not matter how you feel about yourself, know that your heavenly father is ready to embrace you with His loving arms ‘just as you are’. You can come to Him just as you are.

Dit maak nie saak hoe jy oor jouself voel, weet dat julle hemelse Vader is gereed om jou te omhels met Sy liefdevolle arms ‘net soos jy is. Jy kan na Hom toe kom net soos jy is.
1 Korintiërs 1:27
