14I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, complete in knowledge and competent to instruct one another. 15I have written you quite boldly on some points, as if to remind you of them again, because of the grace God gave me 16to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles with the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
Oh Jesus, how I wish this were true of me. I am not full of goodness. I lack so much knowledge. I fall and struggle so much that I don’t think I am competent to instruct anyone. Lord, how can I be this age and have followed You for so long, and still be so childish in my Christianity. Jesus Lord, rescue me again. Perhaps I have grown so slowly because I have done such a poor job of truly following You. I have been so uncommitted and in the shadows. I have hidden my sins and not told others about You. Please Lord, make me full of goodness, complete in knowledge, and competent to instruct another. I know getting there will mean much suffering and many trials, but please, get me there. Change me Lord. *Romans15*
