TO THE BIBLE: Luke 15:7
“I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.”
As the scripture above reveals, all of heaven rejoices over a single soul that receives salvation. This shows you know how important every human person on the face of the earth is to the Lord. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” He loved the world of humans, and that includes you. Now, you need to know this: you’re important to God, precious, and treasured. He loves you as an individual; He knows you by name and knows where you live.
He paid the heftiest of prices—the blood of His Son Jesus Christ—for your salvation: “For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect” (1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV). This means you’re worth the precious blood of Jesus Christ and His most priceless gem.
When you walk every day with the consciousness that you’re important to God, it will inspire boldness and confidence in your spirit. You’ll think like a victor, walk with your head high and dominate your world as a king. You’ll know that nothing is impossible to you, because you’re a joint-heir with Christ. See yourself in this light; think, talk, and act as one who’s important to God, indispensable, valuable, and precious in God’s sight because you sure are!
Heavenly Father, I thank you for making me your most valuable treasure. I walk in the consciousness of this truth knowing that nothing is impossible to me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
