I have considered that my worth has been wrapped in the blanket of God’s grace. His revelation given to me concerning my salvation has given me a worth outside the realm of this world. No longer is it tied to my net worth or what vehicle is in the driveway or whether I have a driveway. It is not in the fact that my wife is hot and loves to run 5 and 10Ks. Nor is it the type of dog and whether or not my breed is AKC. It is not in the status of my employment or layoff. It is not found in my gender, race, or denomination. It does not reside in my relationship status or how many twitter followers I may or may not have on twitter. No amount of friends or fans on the Huffington Post or how many books I may or may not sell will be factored into my worth. My worth has been sealed, secured and already delivered.
The fact is that without Christ I have no future. The only possession I may attain on earth will have to be released when I longer live on the planet. Whatever satisfaction may be found in gloating and arrogant pride ceases to serve a purpose. What have I left behind? What is my worth now?
Gratefully, since my worth has been securely fastened in the arms of Christ, my relationship with him, at my death, only grows stronger. Now I see him face to face and will ever be grateful. Thank you Lord Jesus for making me worthy of heaven. For shedding your precious blood that secures my rightful place in glory. I am worth it. I am worth it, because Jesus says I am worth it and that settles it for me.
If you know the Lord, then stop valuing yourself with outward things and understand that no matter what happens in the end, if the creator of heaven and earth has valued you. Well, that speaks for itself.
