Many people are turned off by the word worthy in the Bible, such as in the following Scriptures:
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, _ Ephesians 4:1
That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. _ 1 Thessalonians 2:12
That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; _ Colossians 1:10
The truth is that we, in and of ourselves, cannot walk worthy. We have been made worthy by the blood of Jesus.
It is only the Holy Spirit in us that cause us to do the right thing, to live the right way, because we are no longer our own but His.
Without God, we are nothing. We can do nothing. We are a branch connected to a vine. Unless we are tapped into the vine, the Source, we cannot talk right, walk right or do anything right.
Instead surrender to the Source. Let Him do all the work within you because if you try to do it on your own, it will be a disaster, a struggle.
If you let Him do it, you will be amazed at your transformation, as subtle as it might be, one year from now. Two years from now. Even ten years down the road.

Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour? Do you believe Jesus died to pay the price for your sin? That He was raised from the dead? Then just pray aloud, “Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.” If you believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, you are Born-again. Let us know if you prayed this prayer.
