“Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” Genesis 1:26
Oh my friends you have great value in the eyes of the Lord. The very fact that you were made in the image of God and that you possess a soul, which has far greater value than any of the world’s riches, shows how valuable you are to the Lord. God not only made you in his image, but he even sent his son, Jesus, to die on the cross for you, further demonstrating the value he placed on your life.
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
Your price tag was huge and you were bought with the very blood of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary. The most amazing part is that He died for us while, we were still in our sins! That is what I would call some crazy, deep, love! Even though we may not deserve the love, attention, and sacrifice that God has so freely given us; we must, in faith, believe what the Bible says about our value in the eyes of God. Because there is joy in knowing who made you, who sacrificed Himself for you, and who it is that gets the glory for it all… our Lord Jesus Christ!
“…you are precious in My sight… and I have loved you…” Isa. 43:4
“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15
“The very hairs of your head are all numbered.Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:30-31
” …I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
These Scriptures show how much Christ values you and there is no sin to big that can make Him love you any less. For he loves and values us all. You are precious, loved, never forsaken, never left, a friend of God and he even knows the numbers of hairs on your heads…! (I have never taken the time to count any-bodies number of hairs on their head yet, the Creator of earth himself, knows yours. Amazing!) These are all promises to those who call him Lord and what a blessing it is to be valued by the Most High God!
May God grant you peace my friends! Love you all!
