I. Introduction:

A. To the Jews, Paul stated they judged themselves unworthy of everlasting life (Acts 13:45-46).

  1. There was meaning to them behind that (Matthew 21:23-46).
  2. Rejecting the will of God certainly puts people in a self-inflicted state of lacking worth (Luke 7:29-30).
B. Having said all of that, there are Scriptures that if we miss the intent of we can start thinking of ourselves as unworthy (i.e. Luke 17:5-10).
  1. There was a struggle among the Apostles that needed addressed and taught on (Luke 9:46-48).
  2. To the point, we don’t want to exalt ourselves. We need to be humble. We need to know our place (Philippians 3:4-11).
  3. We have to be balanced. If we self-depricate, we’d not even be able to partake of the Lord’s Supper (I Corinthians 11:26-32).

II. Body: I Thessalonians 2:11-13

A. Considering the word translated “worthy” in our text (Strong’s # 516).
  1. Defined: “appropriately: — as becometh, after a godly sort, worthily(-thy). Suitably, worthily, in a manner worthy of.”
  2. Also, translated “worthy” in Ephesians 4:1 and Colossians 1:10.
  3. Translated “becometh” in Romans 16:2 and Philippians 1:27.
  4. Translated “after a godly sort” in III John 1:6.
B. From what we have just read, and as we see in other Scriptures, we CAN be worthy of God (II Thessalonians 1:3-5 and Revelation 3:4).
  1. By all means, we cannot reach this all by ourselves (I Peter 1:13-19).
  2. Even in contexts that teaches the part of Christ in our being made clean, we still read there is a part we must keep (Colossians 1:12-23).
C. The key, in what we’re studying today, is in our walk (I John 1:3-2:6).
  1. Remember, a Scripture we looked at last week (I Thessalonians 4:1-2).
  2. We are to walk as children of the light (Ephesians 5:6-11).
  3. Walking in Christ as taught (Colossians 2:1-10).
  4. What you DON’T see is someone sitting idly, doing nothing, spiritually sleeping through life, etc. being called worthy. The fact is, we know better (Matthew 25:14-30, Hebrews 6:12, and James 2:14-26).

III. Conclusion: Walk in a way that you will be counted worthy to obtain the world to come (Luke 20:34-35). *Context: Luke 20:27-40
