Ever notice how much more valuable something becomes when you have to spend big bucks on it? I'd be more apt to take care of a brand new Lincoln than a yard sale bicycle and I've noted that most people are more careful with the homes they purchase than the ones they rent. Then, of course, there are those things one can't put a price tag on, for example the ring I wear with my wedding ring. This cluster of diamonds-though valued high in dollars and cents-is more prized to me because it belonged originally to my grandmother, then my mother and now me. One day it will belong to my daughter...and her daughter...and so on and so forth.


As Christians we are a strange blend of Lincoln and heirloom. A high price was paid for us, yet because of that price we have become brides to the Bridegroom, children of the Creator, brothers and sisters of Messiah, heirlooms. Our value to God is beyond our comprehension, quite frankly.


So then, what would He be willing to give to you? And not just give? The scripture says He will freely give. Charizomai, it is written in Greek. To give graciously and freely.


Tie Them Together


What then shall you say to this?


If God be for you, who can be against you? (No one)


But what about those days when it seems the whole world is? Remember, God has invested His Son into your life. You are precious. You are valuable. He is not about to let you down now.
