Your Worth in God’s Words

My child (Jn. 1:12; 1 Jn. 3:1),

My son, my daughter (2 Cor. 6:18) I created your innermost parts; wove you in your mother’s womb. My thoughts for you are precious (Ps. 139:13, 17); call me your, Abba, Father (Ps. 89:26; Mt. 6:9; Rm. 8:15).

You are created out of my own likeness (Gen. 1:27). You are awesomely and wonderfully made (Ps. 139:14). I have loved you with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3) despite your sinfulness (Rm. 3:23; Eph. 2:1-2), out of my love I died for you (Rm. 5:8). I have redeemed you; you are mine (Isa. 43:1). My love does not condemn you (Rm. 8:1); I love you because I am love (1 Jn. 4:8).

I am your friend, a friend who was willing to give up life for your sake (Jn. 15:13-15) because I have chosen you (Rm. 8:29-30, Eph. 1:4-5; Jn. 6:44; 2 Thess. 2:13). Indeed, you are valuable (1 Pt. 2:9; Lk. 12:7; Mt. 6:25-34). In Christ, you are now forgiven (Isa. 1:18, 43:25; Mt. 26:28; Ps. 103:12; Lk. 7:47-50), loved (Jn. 3:16), liberated from chains of slavery (Lk. 4:18), you are made alive (Eph. 2:5), and saved (Eph. 2:8-9; Rm. 10: 9-10). I am coming back for you (1 Thess. 5:1-10; Rev. 22:20).

For now, rest in me (Ps. 62:5-8; Mt. 11:29; Heb. 4); bring your burdens to me because I care for you (1 Pt. 5:7), I understand your pain and weaknesses (Heb. 4:15). Let my Spirit comfort you (Jn. 14:16-17), lead you and guide you in all the truth (Gal. 5:18, 25; Jn. 16:13), and transform you into Christ’s image (2 Cor. 3:18).

Always with you (Isaiah 41:10; Mt. 28:20; Rm. 8:38-39),

I AM (Ex. 3:14; Jn. 8:58)
