You are of greater worth

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And [yet] not one of them is forgotten or uncared for in the presence of God. But [even] the very hairs on your head are all numbered. Do not be struck with fear or seized with alarm; you are of greater worth than many [flocks] of sparrows. Luke 12:6-7 AMP

This morning I felt that God wants to remind us that we are of greater worth to Him. The Message Bible puts it this way

"What's the price of two or three pet canaries? Some loose change, right? But God never overlooks a single one. And he pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail - even numbering the hairs on your head! So don't be intimidated by all this bully talk. You're worth more than a million canaries. Luke 12:6-7 The Message

He loves us so much, that He wants to spend eternity with us - yes, you and me.

For God so greatly love and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. John 3:16 AMP

He loves us so much, that He gave us Jesus - life.

But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life. John 4:14 AMP

Questions for today, do you believe you are of greater worth to God? Do you believe that God wants to spend every moment of eternity with you? Do you believe that Jesus has given you life? 

If you are not sure how to answer these questions, why not take some quiet time today to talk to God about these things, and ask Him to help you believe that you are of greater worth to Him.

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God's] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Once you were not a people [at all], but now you are God's people; once you were unpitied, but now you are pitied and have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10 AMP
