What can honestly have so much more worth than gold? I feel someone asking. 😂😂😂
Why, it’s you.
Yes, you, dear reader. You are worth so much more than gold, or silver, or platinum, any valuable gemstones; anything precious you think of, you are
preciouser more precious 😝😝
Think back at a time when you thought you did not deserve anything, or were not worthy of anything.
I can relate to that a lot.
There are times I felt like a useless human being, and everything I thought was meant to be given to me was present in someone else. I fell into a deep pit of despair and sin trying to live up to what the world wanted me to be, depression and low self esteem cause I labelled myself what the world labelled me.
Ephesians 1:3-11 (NKJV)
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.
7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace 8 which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, 9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both[a] which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. 11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.
What a wonderful thing, to be called to God according to His mercy and grace and know His will for us, that we may give glory to Him who turned us from base lead to pure gold through the death of His only perfect Son, and let others know of this wonderful love is all we are asked to do.
If you were treated to lunch at Java (sorry, cant think of a better place 😄😄😅), won’t we want everyone to know about it? Apply the same desire in sharing what God has done for you; letting everyone know that He gave us life, called us from darkness, and called us His children.
I am worth more than gold in God’s eyes. You are, too. And worthy of a host of other things. Worthy to approach His throne of grace, worthy to be called His own children, worthy to be called co-heirs of the Kingdom with Jesus.
Be blessed ✌
