You Are Worth It!

Matthew 10:31 says, “So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

Sparrows weren’t worth much in Jesus’ time, and they are very common in our time as well. There are at least 35 species in North America.

As common as they are, God knows when even one falls to the ground. And Jesus tells us we are worth more than many sparrows.

So why are you and I afraid? Maybe it’s the awful news all around us. Maybe we can’t see a way out of our circumstances. Maybe we are in a dark place that Jesus wants to break through with His light.

But whatever we are facing, we don’t need to be afraid. Jesus knows. He cares. He is good. He loves us.

Oh, Child of God, you are so worth it to Him! To the extent He died for you then rose again to live forever. He forgives your sins and makes you new. You don’t even need to be afraid. He is with you. He is for you!

And there you go!

Beautiful! Seriously!

I’ve rarely considered myself beautiful. But in Ezekiel 16:13 God says “so you were exceedingly beautiful and advanced to royalty!”

1 Peter 2:5 tells me I’m part of a holy priesthood, together with living stones built to a spiritual house acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. And Christians everywhere, so are you! We are acceptable because of Jesus Christ!

He has sought us!
He has bought us!
He has beat death!
He is in us!

To say we are unworthy is not saying what God thinks about us. He made us worthy. He chose us to be His own. He chose to make us His -  to be holy, speaking His truth - and show Himself through our bodies, His temple! Our value to Him is infinite. His love never ceases toward us. His plan to win the world works through us!

Rejoice, exceedingly beautiful one. You have advanced to royalty. For if you know Jesus, you are a child of the King.  And there you go!
