i dont just mean tell others whats right and wrong, or try to convert others, i mean help them make better choices and be more religious (ones again, im not talking about those who dont even want to hear about God, im talking about those who actually would like some help). sometimes i feel as though im meant to lead others because often times my advice or just my shared thoughts, make people change some things about themselves. but the reason im questioning myself so much is because im nowhere near a perfect christian. i just dont understand why God would give me such a great responsibility when i myself am still lost. i mean lately i've been making much better decisions and really have been trying to get closer to him, but i still feel like im just not worthy of that. like i told my friend who was depressed that she should maybe start going to church again and surrounding herself with more positive people, now she's at church every Sunday and reading the bible every day. she's happier and has a better mindset now. im very glad to have contributed to her happiness, but i still feel like only really religious people should have that privilege. but whats your opinions?

I used to feel that way. But people nowadays shoot down Christianity as soon as you bring it up. I do however try and better my community and my friends by sharing my insights and using teachings from the bible without telling them its from the bible.
The Lord GOD has given me
a well-trained tongue,
That I might know how to answer the weary
a word that will waken them.
Morning after morning
he wakens my ear to hear as disciples do;
The Lord GOD opened my ear;
I did not refuse,
did not turn away.

You don't have to be perfect. No one is. Jesus picked 12 men to follow him and not one of them was perfect either. Far from it. You don't need special privileges to encourage people. God will use anyone He sees fit. I say pray about it and go for it.2
