So many people in life feel worthless. They may have been abused by others and blame themselves. They may have been downtrodden in many ways and have been told that they are "a waste of space". They may feel worthless because of the way they have treated others. Multitudes of people grow up with a total lack of self-worth and so often it is because they have never experienced a loving home and have never felt valued at all.
God, however, sees us all differently! The highest price was paid for our redemption - the shed blood of Jesus. Have you ever realised before just how much YOU are worth in the sight of God? The Lord Jesus Christ loves us so much that He took our place on the cross and died for our sins! The Bible tells us just how much we are worth in the following verse:
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver or gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
1 Peter 1:18-19
It is not, however, enough just to know your value, you must come to the Saviour who paid the price for you. If you have not already come to the Lord Jesus Christ in repentance and faith and confessed Him as Lord, do it today and be set free in His love!
When you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, tell yourself just how much you are worth in God's sight! Think of the cross. Think of the blood of Jesus. Think of His suffering, and thank God for all He has done for you!
Evangelist Alex Bowler
