God’s Love is VALUABLE

Galatians 3: 13-14 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse for us—because it is written, everyone who is hung on a tree is cursed. He redeemed us so that the blessing of Abraham would come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, and that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

It has been over a month now since Christmas. You asked and even probably begged all year long for that must have Christmas present and then you finally got it. You have had a month to enjoy it… Are you still enjoying it or has it been put on a shelf or put in the corner of the room and hasn’t really been touched or even thought of for 3 weeks?

Have you gone shopping and come across something that you feel is a must have. Then you see the discounted price. That’s it! It must be fate. Done deal… Then the buyer’s remorse kicks in. The next thing you know a life size Yoda statue is forever placed in the corner of your living room collecting dust and scaring all guest.

We seem to lose value in a bunch of things, but God’s love will always be valuable. People these days tend to no longer see themselves as valuable. Maybe this is because people live in remorse of their past mistakes and feel as if they have lost their value because of poor choices. It could be someone has been told, “You’re not important”, and that’s all they have known. God saw us as valuable! So valuable that Jesus would die for our redemption so that we could be set free. We are kind of a BIG DEAL to Jesus…. We are VALUABLE!! You have been redeemed, which is a fancy way of saying you have been purchased. God did not purchase us just to throw us to the side after a week. We are not meant to collect dust in the corner. God loves you, and as long as you know this you will understand you are valuable.
