Where to find your true worth
January 18, 2013
But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
2 Peter 3:8
A story is told about a man who was talking with the Lord and said, “Lord, is it true that with You, a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day?” And the Lord said, “Yes, that’s true.”
“Does that mean that a penny to you is like a million dollars and a million dollars like a penny?” And the Lord said, “Yes, a million dollars to you is like a penny to me.”
The man said, “Well, Lord, since a million dollars to you is like a penny to me, could I have a penny?” And the Lord said, “Yes… in a minute.”
When it comes to what you and I consider precious such as time, money, or anything else of value, in the grand scheme of things it’s really worthless. You can be the richest person in the world, but on the day you meet God, all your earthly possessions will count for nothing. It’s been said that that’s why you never see a hearse towing a U-Haul trailer!
Compared to everything God has, you really have very little. So when you count your real value, remember that God sees past material wealth and petty possessions into your very soul. And with Christ on your side, you can have the only kind of riches that really matter in His eyes!
DON’T BE DECEIVED INTO THINKING YOUR VALUE IS FOUND IN THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD. THE ONLY RICHES THAT MATTER ARE THOSE YOU HAVE IN CHRIST!

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
