DO YOU REALIZE HOW SPECIAL YOU ARE?
January 06, 2022
Prayer: Thank You Lord for loving me so much. Today I want to praise You for all You have done for me. Amen
Scripture: For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom He paid was not mere gold or silver. He paid for you with the precious lifeblood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. God chose Him for this purpose long before the world began, but now in these final days, He was sent to the earth for all to see. And He did this for you. 1 Peter 1:18-20 NLT
Ever feel lonely, left out, ignored? Think you are ‘invisible?’
Think again. God has had His eye on you since before He created the universe. He foreknew you and loved you. He knew you and I would have a sin problem, inherited from our fallen parents. God provided a personal sacrifice to atone for our sin– Jesus Christ. Knowing that should overcome those pitiful feelings that trouble you.
You have been honored by God with the supreme sacrifice. Christ obeyed and willingly sacrificed Himself, though He had other choices. How valued you and I should feel! We ought to praise our Lord each and every day we take breath and open our eyes.
After those breaths are no longer taken, we will be able to praise Him personally in His presence. Take joy in knowing this truth.
…lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other’s faults because of your love. Always keep yourselves united with the Holy Spirit and bind yourselves together with peace” (Eph. 4:1-3)
