As we celebrated Resurrection Day on yesterday it's quite obvious that Christians around the world understand their worth. Seeing that our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ demonstrated his love for us back on Calvary. But what about those of you who choose not embrace his love or take him up on his offer of eternal life, where does that leave you? That's who i would like to focus on today.
This might come as a surprise but it leaves you in a pretty good position my friend. Because despite your unwillingness to accept his love his promise still stands! God is not a respecter of persons. This simply means that I'm no more valuable than you regardless of my conviction in Christ Jesus. God doesn't pick favorites. It rains on the just & the unjust. So I've got some really good news for you today, YOU ARE WORTHY!
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, "Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons."
The really cool thing about God is that he doesn't make junk, period. I don't care how crazy or out of whack you may think your life is, God finds value in everything & everyone including YOU! After all you were fearfully & wonderfully made.
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. I know that full well."
As the saying goes one man's trash is another man's treasure. God is able to pull out the treasure inside of you. Trust me I know. God is constantly showing me my value & worth daily even as broken & fragmented as i am.
What I absolutely admire about God is that he loves us & he grows us all in the same space. This is so beautiful & amazing! This way we no longer have to rely upon the things of this world to add value to our lives. He shows us that we really are gems in the making. Created by the head archaeologist! So there's really nothing to discover here. He just points us in the direction of our greatness and when he's done buffing out the blemishes & scars he puts us on display for the world to see a demonstration of his love!
As you go forward in your daily journey I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and that you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
