Smile We are worth it!

Morning, God is so good!

God has given me a personal revelation (personal to me but not new by any means), and the revelation is that every human being is worth the price He paid on Calvary.

I am posting this because I have found myself putting what I think above what God thinks. For instance, if my daughters (2 and 4) were walking into an intersection with cars zooming by, I would not say that they are not worth me running into the intersection, putting my life on the line and trying to save them. I (let's be real) might be scared of the pain but the thought of losing them would drive/force me to action because I love them so much.

You probably see where I'm going with this...

Now, in Church I have always said that "God doesn't need us, but He wants us dearly." I thought that was high and noble, but would I ever say, "I don't need my daughters, but I just want them very bad."? Now, I would never ever ever say that about my children, but I let it flow so easily out of my mouth about God and His children. I was placing a higher estimate on my relationship with my children than God and His relationship with His children.... man I'm sinful....

God paid a price for Love so High that only the cross explains....
God could have chosen another way but I think He chose the only way to save us that is possible. In His infinite wisdom He could only come up with one plan that tells our value to Him.... the Cross.

I'm not boasting when I say I'm worth it or trying to blow your head up when I say you are worth it. All I'm saying is that, Jesus must think we are worth it! How do I know? I looked at my daddy on the Cross this morning....

Hope this thought Blesses and encourages you!
God Bless Brothers and Sisters!
Rich

John 3:16 RTV (Rev. Terrance Version)

For God so loved Rich, that he gave his only begotten Son, that if Rich believes in Jesus, Rich should not perish, but have everlasting life.

===

I read the Bible on first person, makes it personal to me.

THANKS for sharing your heart!!
