DAY 11 MONDAY: JANUARY 2021

YOU ARE VALUABLE TO GOD IN LIFE!

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10).

As a Christian, you are very precious and valuable to God because you were created in His image and likeness in life (Genesis 1:26). Therefore, you should never allow anyone to demean or despise you in life. You should not despise yourself either in life. The Bible says in the opening text that we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he is indeed valuable to God in life. Hence, a life that is indeed valuable to God is absolutely a life that is a great blessing to the world in life forever.

God knows how valuable you are to Him in life. That is why He had to purchase you with the precious blood of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ in life. No wonder the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:20, “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” Therefore, a Christian is more precious and valuable to God than anything else one can think of in life. In fact, the worth of any item is in its price. Indeed, you are as valuable to God just as Jesus Christ is to Him in life. A life that is valuable to God is absolutely a life that will always bring glory to God in life forever.

The Bible expresses how valuable you are to God when it stated in 1 Peter 2:9 thus, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” In fact, a Christian is more valuable to God because of his distinct characteristics in life namely; a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people and marvelous light of glory in life. Indeed, a Christian is God’s light to the world in life (Matthew 5:14). Therefore, whoever lives his life to the praise and glory of God in the highest absolutely becomes valuable to God and to men in life forever.

Daily Tip: You are more valuable to God than anything else one can think of in life; therefore, do not allow anyone to demean or despise you no matter what in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well (Psalm 139:14).
