Because you are precious in my eyes, you are honored, and I love you.
Are you seeing yourself the way God sees you? Here’s a little reminder for you just in case you have forgotten. You are God’s own creation and God doesn’t make mistakes. You have worth, you are a jewel and you belong to God. You have been adopted into His own family, you are His child and an heir to His kingdom. God has given you gifts and talents to use for His purpose because He has a plan for you. He loves you so much He gave His Only Son so you could have eternal life. Stop worrying about the way the world sees you and start seeing yourself the way God sees you, as His precious child.
Heavenly Father, Thank You for your love and patience. I admit that sometimes I forget my worth and I forget how much You love me. Sometimes, I even worry about what the world thinks of me when deep in my heart I know that what You think of me is what really matters. Help me Lord, to remember that I was chosen by You and that I am precious in Your sight. Help me to remain confident in Your love because I am a child of God almighty. Amen
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
Just like the Disciples, you have been chosen to be part of the body of Christ. God chose you to be part of His family even before the foundation of the world. You are a part of His plan and you have a purpose. You have been appointed to go out and bear fruit, to share the Gospel of Christ and bring souls to Jesus. We, as believers in Christ, are all ministers in that we are working for God’s kingdom. You are encouraged continue the work God has called you to do and if you ask the Father in Jesus’ name, He will give you whatever you need to be successful and fruitful.
Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.
In life there will be times when you need encouragement and there will be times when you need to encourage others and show compassion. There will be times when you go through hardships and need someone to lean on and there will be times when others will need to lean on you. We all face temptation and trials and as brothers and sisters in Christ we need to be there for one another, sympathizing, praying and sharing the love of Christ.
But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.
God had predetermined that He would send His Son, Jesus, to save the world from sin. When that time came He sent Jesus to live among us and to ultimately pay the price for ours sins, bringing redemption to all humanity. Jesus was born and died so that through faith we could receive the gift of adoption into God’s family for all eternity.
