How Much Do You Think You’re Worth?

"You are coming to Christ, the living stone who was rejected by humans
but was chosen as precious by God."
(1 Peter 2:4 GW)

How much do you think you're worth? I'm not
talking about your net worth; I'm talking about your self-worth. Don't ever
confuse your valuables with your value as a person. You can be rich or poor,
but it has nothing to do with your value as a person.

 

There are two things that determine value in
life:

 

Value is what someone is willing to pay for
something.

Value depends on who has owned something in
the past.

 

Based on these two things, what's your value?
Ask yourself, "Who owns me?" and "What was paid for me?" The Bible says, "You have been bought and paid for by Christ, so you belong to him"
(1 Corinthians 7:23a LB).

 

You belong to God, and Jesus paid for you
with his life. The cross proves your value.

Nobody has ever paid a greater ransom price
than God paid for you! You're acceptable, and you're valuable.

 

Peter uses the imagery of a building project
to illustrate our value. God is building this stone building that represents
the Church, the family of God, and you're one of the stones. "You are coming to Christ, the living stone who was rejected by humans
but was chosen as precious by God"
(1 Peter 2:4 GW). Jesus is the
living stone. He was perfect, but some people still rejected him. Some of you
may think, "If I could just be perfect, then I would be accepted." No! Jesus
was perfect, but even he wasn't accepted by everyone. But, he was "chosen by
God as valuable."

 

God is building his Church, but it's not
found in temples or church buildings. God lives in people, and you are his
spiritual house. Peter says that you're a living stone. When you give your life
to Christ, you become a building block in God's great plan.

 

Talk It Over

 

How should understanding a Christian's value
in God's eyes change the way you treat yourself and other believers?

 

What does this mean to you: Don't ever
confuse your valuables with your value as a person.

 

Meditate on this truth: The cross of Jesus
Christ proves your value.
