Five Truths showing your Value to God.
I am going to take a break from Romans chapter nine and answer yesterday’s questions at a later date. I need more time to wrestle through it. I hope you will too. So, instead I want to remind you of five truths showing your value to God.
5 truths showing your value to God:
1. You are Created in the image of God – Genesis 1:26, 27.
Let this truth sink in deep. You are created in the image of God. You are set apart from every other living thing. You are valuable.
2. You are Redeemed at the greatest price – 1 Peter 1:18-19; John 19:30.
You have been bought at the highest price. When Jesus breathed His last breath on the cross He said, “It is finished.” meaning “Paid in full.” You are not garbage, you are more costly than the most expensive jewel. You are paid for in full.
3. You are being Restored over your entire lifetime – Hebrews 10:14.
You are being sanctified “restored” over a lifetime. The great Artist is taking a lifetime to restore you to the priceless treasure you already are. Keep looking to Jesus the author and perfecter of your faith knowing how valuable you are to Him.
4. You are Recruited to be on God’s team (#1 Draft pick) – John 15:16.
How does it feel to be picked first? You are chosen as God’s number one draft pick. God wants you on His team. How does that make you feel?
5. Return - Jesus is returning for you so you can be with Him forever – John 14:1-3.
This is my favorite one. You know you are valuable when someone goes great lengths to return for you. Jesus is coming soon. Are you ready?
I hope this shows you how valuable you are to God. When we know how valuable we are it changes the way we daily live and the way we react to circumstances in life. Think about it, when a man knows he is loved by a woman he thinks he can do anything in the world.
May you know your value today. You are loved with the greatest love.
