“No matter what you’ve heard
This is what you’re worth
More than all the money or the diamonds and pearls
Oh, this is who you are
Yeah, this is who you are”
– For King and Country
“Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?” 1 Corinthians 3: 16
There are some amazing temples and churches built around the world to honor God. In their most glorious days, many were, and still are, adorned with spectacular paintings, impressive stones, gold etches and other precious stones.
While these structures are impressive, YOU are more valuable to God than any structure ever created by man.
The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples made by human hands. Acts 17:24
In fact, God created you perfectly out of love so that He could live inside of you and have a close and personal relationship with you.
God proved how much He values you and His love for you by sending His only natural Son and most precious “commodity”, Jesus Christ to die on a cross so that your life could be ransomed.
For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 1 Peter 1:18-19
As God’s most valuable commodity, you do not need to look in the mirror or to others for validation. Instead, look inwards at God’s Spirit inside of you, trust and believe only His truth about you, then you will see a dramatic transformation in your life.
