The questions are valid. Can I really love those who persecute me? Can I really learn to be more like Jesus? Am I worthy to call myself a follower of Christ? The answers are yes, yes and yes…and yes to a hundred other doubts you may have about yourself. You can because you are “equipped.” The writer of Hebrews gives us this benediction: “May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus Christ, that great Shepherd of the sheep, EQUIP you with everything good for doing His will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory for ever and ever,Amen.”
God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
