Today’s Reading: Luke 9:7-27
Have you ever heard the expression, “I would like to buy him/her for what their worth and sell them for what they think their worth.” You may have even said that about someone. But I can assure you that you could never buy a person for what they are worth.
How much are you worth? What is your net value? If you fill out a will or take out a loan – they will try to determine what is your net worth? But what determines your worth? Is it how much money you have in the bank or saving? Is it how much property or material things you possess? What make you uniquely you?Someone once said, “You are different, just like everyone else!”
I don’t know what you consider the worth of your soul, but Jesus believed that one soul was worth more than all the wealth of this world. LUKE 9:25 – For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?
How could anyone take lightly his soul? How could anyone ignore his soul in the light of what the Almighty God has paid for it? The blood of his dear Son. Jesus thought so much of your soul that he came from heaven and suffered the pangs of death to save your soul.
Melvin Tinker said “Whether they were rich or poor, religious or pagan, sick or healthy, it didn’t matter; every single person was valued and loved by (Jesus), and by loving them He actually increased their value.”
Our worth is found in what we are worth to God and the marvelous cost that for Christ died for us.
