For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. —Ephesians 2:10
Imagine being God’s masterpiece, his priceless work of art, unlike any other. That’s your value: priceless.
Your value doesn’t come from the clothes you wear, a number on a scale, your career, or your success with a health plan on any given day.
You are of immense value because God made you. If that’s not enough, Jesus died for you and the Holy Spirit lives in you. As unbelievable as it sounds, doubting your value is actually unbelief in his Word. What would you do differently if you were sure you were of immense value?
Doing good deeds and making good choices doesn’t make you more valuable to God. Instead, doing good things flows out of the value you already have. God made you to do things that only you could do. If you don’t know what those good things are, start with what you know.
Offer to do something at your church or in your community. Reach out to a friend. Ask God to show you the good things you were made to do.
Food for Thought: Only you can make the contribution to this world for which God has uniquely and wonderfully made you.
