“…From now on we estimate and regard no one from a [purely] human point of view [in terms of natural standards of value]”. -2 Corinthians 5:16 AMPLIFIED BIBLE
In a survey published in Wired magazine, the parts of the human body, if they could all be sold, added up to a value of more than $45 million. But is that your true worth? No. We don’t regard anyone from the point of view of natural standards of value. Wny? Because God established your worth as being infinite and inestimable when He exchanged the life of Jesus, His perfect. sinless Son – for yours. How valuable are you that God would exchange His only Son’s life for yours? It seems reasonable to say that your worth and value must be far beyond what you ever imagined or could even be measured in earthly terms.
John Mueller, a political scientist at Ohio State University, who’s work focuses on national security and risk analysis, says, “you can’t simply say every life is infinitely valuable – that’s just not the way the world operates!” So who’s report will you believe – the world, the flesh, the devil, the scientists? Or God, who emphatically proved your value by giving His priceless Son in exchange for you?
Take Action: The next time someone or something tries to make you feel worthless, you’ll see it for what it is…a lie. You’ll not let it affect you in any way, because you know the truth – that your worth has been forever settled as “infinitely valuable!”
