I read of a candidate for ordination into the ministry. He was having an interview with the bishop on the day before the ordination service. Feeling his unworthiness he said, "Bishop, if you knew how unworthy I am to be ordained by you, you would never lay hands on me."

The dear bishop replied, "If you knew how unworthy I am, you wouldn’t let me do it!"

We’ve got to recognise that in the sight of God we’re but sinners saved by grace. We need to come again and again to the Cross of our Saviour.
