Summary: Even if we feel inadequate in our calling to the life of discipleship, Jesus makes us adequate because Jesus loves us.

Scripture: “For I am the least of the apostles, unfit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me has not been in vain.
