Am I Worthy?
by Mary Alice McGinnis
Let the theme music from “Mission Impossible” begin to play. Do you hear it in your mind?
If God were to appear to you right now and speak these words, what would He say?
“Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is . . .”
In Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, he has spent three chapters explaining the work of God’s grace. Let’s look at just a few:
Ephesians 1:3-4 says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight.”
Ephesians 2:4-5, “But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.”
Ephesians 3:17-20, “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. . .”
Paul begins chapter 4 with this urgent message, “I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.”
