Today, we are going to be talking about our worth. It’s amazing how various people don’t really know what their true value is. John 3:16 (NLT) says,
“ For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
Does that not make you rejoice? Glory! The creator of the universe loves you so much, he made himself a man in the person of Jesus Christ and came to pay the price for your sins. Just thinking about that alone makes me joyful. We didn’t deserve it but he did it anyway.
The first part of verse 16 says “ For this how God loved the world”, and in the book of 1 John 4 vs 8, John the beloved tells GOD IS LOVE. We can say to an extent that God came to us just as He is. He did this to show you that He wants you to be with him. This is why irrespective of what you call sin, His arms are very wide open to receive you. Nothing is too wide to separate you from His love. It doesn’t matter what comes your way, it is always going to be well because Jesus Christ is your BLESSED ASSURANCE.
Before I conclude this message, I just want to share a short experience with you. On my way to work on a Monday morning, I got to the bus stop I was meant to highlight at, then the driver asked for the money and I didn’t have the exact change so I gave what I had. All of a sudden the driver lashed out at me and started saying why did I enter if I didn’t have change. He also stated that I ignored him telling me that I should not enter if there was no change, which was entirely false. But the surprising thing was that, as he shouted at me, I felt the Holy Spirit helping me to be calm and just address the matter with a soft approach. And then it hit me! This exactly is what the salvation story is about. He gave us what we don’t deserve by doing what he didn’t have to— That is your worth!
Thank you God for your love that you showed us
We are grateful and we don’t take it for granted
We love you because you loved us first
We know that you have our best at heart
Thank you Lord. We love you

You are a chosen generation and a royal priesthood. You are the apple of God’s eyes. You are worth more than gold or the finest rubies in this world. If He could send His only son to die for you, if He could lay down His life for you, don’t believe when he says you worth nothing. Look at him and say, ‘my worth is in the cross’.
