DAY 16 FRIDAY: APRIL 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. Indeed, a Christian should know that he is very valuable to God and so his life and ministry are indispensible to humanity in life. Hence, a Christian who is very valuable to God is absolutely valuable to the church and humanity 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. That is why 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 had been bought with a price and that price is indeed the blood of Jesus Christ in life. In fact, the worth of any item is in its price in life. Indeed, you are as valuable to God just as Jesus is to Him in life. Of course, the value of a Christian is equivalent to the blood of Jesus Christ which was shed on the cross of Calvary in life. A Christian that is valuable to God is absolutely a great blessing to humanity 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 should take note of the fact that he is indeed a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own special person ordained for His praises in life. Of course, every Christian is supposed to take note of the fact that as a chosen generation, he is expected to reflect God’s marvelous light to the world in life. Therefore, a Christian is indeed God’s marvelous light to the world in life forever (Matthew 5:14).

Daily Tip: You are valuable to God; therefore, do not allow anyone to demean or despise you no matter the situations you are passing through 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).
