Have you ever knocked on a door, whilst calling out, “It’s only me”? That’s how I feel when I pray, because I know just how sinful and unproductive I am…
When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man” (Luke 5:8; NIV).
His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!’ (Matthew 25:21; NIV).
I’m so sorry I’m only me,
But I just can’t be anyone else.
And transform me.
To serve you.
One day I will hear you say:
My good and faithful servant”.
