It is settled, you are sacred to God!

insecurity

People are always comparing themselves to each other. Why would someone who has discovered their worth ever live from insecurity? We are infinitely valued and loved by God. There is no need for you to establish your worth in front of other people! You are worth the blood of His only son! It is settled, you are sacred to God! If you get that worth, then you don't have to be like a performing monkey seeking the approval of other people. You don't have to do the dance of approval; you just live as who you are!

But if you don't know who you are and if you don't know what you're worth, then your whole life is going to be some sad performance for other people. You're going to be an empty person seeking to be filled by other empty people.

For God so loved the world, that He knew your name and for the sake of your name, He gave the name of that which mattered more than anything else. That you might choose to become, not just His creation, but His child! (John 3:16)
 
Sometimes people say, “Well, we're all God's children.” No, we're not. We're all of infinite worth to God, but we only become His child when we're willing to accept our worth in Him and accept our sonship or daughterhood and accept His Lordship and His Fatherhood. 

People, we're here because we believe that God did something 2,000 years ago that changed everything. He intervened in a surprising way on planet earth and He did what no one ever saw coming! He became one of us and He didn't pursue power or good looks. Jesus came so that you would see how much you matter to God and in accepting your own worth, you would invest your life helping others discover their worth in Christ too! -Dr. Drew Shofner
