Feelings of Unworthiness: Too Messed Up to Be Saved?

David Castillo Dominici
Have you ever felt that you were too unworthy or too sinful to give your life over to Christ? Or have you felt that even though you are saved you made some big mistakes along the way that makes you feel unworthy?  Well, guess what? There is no sin too big that God will not forgive.  I've heard people say that God does not want anything to do with them because they feel they are too messed up.  THAT IS NOT TRUE!!  Let's read what the Bible says about this.

 "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
While we were sinners, Christ thought about us and loved us enough to die on a cross. Yes, He knew that when we were born into this world that we would sin. Are you still not convinced? Paul before he was converted was a persecutor of the Christians.  He also approved of Stephen's death, a follower of Jesus Christ.   Paul was ruthless when it came to the Christians during his day.Yet, after he heard from the Lord, he then became converted to Christianity.

If you want to read more, read Acts 7-9. God turned a murderer into an apostle.  This is what my God can do.  Paul says in 1 Timothy 1:15, "This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief." He felt that he was chief among sinners because of his past. It doesn't matter what you did or do, God can forgive you of all of your sins.

To anyone who battles with unworthiness because of mistakes, read 1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness". Also, if you read Romans 10:9, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Do not let the enemy tell you that you are unworthy of Christ's love and His plan of salvation. 

There is hope for you today.  Let Christ into your heart and you will never be the same. Once we become saved, we become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21). You will have a peace about you that is indescribable. Whatever I am telling is something that I have experienced for myself. The gift of salvation is free and it is not something that can be earned but given.The joy of the Lord becomes your strength whenever you go through perilous times with the aid of this precious gift.  If you desire to give your life over to Him, send me an email at and I would love to talk to you. 

Your Sister in Christ,
