All life has value, even when the owner of that life fails to realize they are valuable. The spark of life, a gift from our creator is a precious thing and yet society today permits it to be tossed away like so much unwanted trash.
Be honest, when you read the title, The Value of Life, you instantly thought you were about to be lectured about the horrors of abortion. But our hope is you already understand abortion is murder and a horrible sin against the gift of life God has bestowed upon us.
In the days that come (God willing) we will explore the sin that is abortion, but today we are talking a little closer to home. Today we are talking about your life.
No matter what your situation is, you have value. The first step is to realize it. Even if you feel all alone, even if you have pushed away everyone in your life. No matter the sins you have committed the Lord above values you….even when you don’t see or understand he is there with you.
If you have a relationship with God you don’t need to read anymore, just reintroduce yourself through prayer. But if you are new to the Lord, if you have not yet asked Jesus into your life please allow me to help you.
Say the following words aloud, Dear God thank you for the life that you have provided, and for the son you so loved but sent to die so that I might be forgiven of my sins. Jesus come into my heart, cleanse my soul, forgive my sins and help me live this day forward in service of our father in heaven, amen.
Welcome to Kingdom. If you said the words above and believe them in your heart you are well on your way. Now spend the next half hour talking to God, he can hear your thoughts, but he loves the sound of your voice. Tell him your thoughts, your fears and your dreams. God isn’t a magical fairy or elf, but he is all powerful and knowing. Your relationship isn’t about what he can provide, it is about how he can guide. So don’t ask for the winning lottery ticket and ask him to show you the way.
When you stop to hear God’s answer you will be amazed….but it all begins with FAITH.
