Reference text: John 3:13-17
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
If we were to place a price tag on your head, is there a number that comes to mind? A million dollars? A billion pounds? A few thousands? What do you think you are worth?
Every now and then we need a reminder of what love ought to look like and for that, the cross is always presented as the perfect example. The one simple statement showing God’s profession of love: ‘I loved you so I gave my son’ is one that should always resonate with the believer.
For in that one action of God, not only did He show the depth of His love but gave us the precious gift of his son. In that one action, He also showed us not just His love, but also our worth – the value he places on us. We have been assessed and deemed to be worth as much as His beloved son. That is an unmatched value.
Sweetheart, our worth is not estimated in currency for no amount of money can replace the sacrifice on the cross. You are precious my dear and your value, inestimable. Don’t believe or accept otherwise.
