(Your True Value With God)
TO THE BIBLE: Galatians 6:10
“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
God’s most valuable assets on earth are not its breathtaking natural wonders or the fancy cars, airplanes, and architectural masterpieces; they’re people! The Bible says, God so loved the world, not the world of things, but the world of people, that He gave His only begotten Son to die for us and show us our value (John 3:16). You’re valuable to God; that’s why He doesn’t want you sick or poor. He wants you well, happy, and prosperous.
God expects you to value others the same way He values you. Don’t despise people. It’s easy to tell whether or not you love people from the way you talk to them. If at any time you’ve despised someone, you ought to fall on your knees in repentance before the Lord and ask Him to forgive you. Understand that no matter how famous or successful you may be, having value and true regard for people is what counts much with God.
You may be great at preaching and winning souls but that’s nothing to God if you haven’t learned to walk in love and value people for who they really are (1 Corinthians 13:1-3). He’s only impressed by the compassion we have and show to the people around us. He’s impressed by the love you show to those for whom Jesus died; that is what makes us true soul winners, and true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35).
Romans 13:9; Galatians 5:14
Dear Father, thank you for placing so much value on me, and demonstrating your great love for me with the death of the Lord Jesus on the cross. I know I am valuable because of the great price you paid for my salvation. I ask that you’ll help me value others the same way you value me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
