Ponder A Little (Blog)

Do you know how valuable and precious you are to God?
The Bible has lots to say about this. 1 John 3:1 says, “The Father has loved us so much that we are called children of God. And we really are His children!”
The Bible talks about God’s children being the apple of His eye. It also tells us that our names are engraved in the palm of God’s hand. And the Bible tells us that God carries us, like a father carries a child when we are weak and tired. Even more, God knows the number of hairs on each of our heads. Jesus says we are more precious than the countless sparrows God cares for. Best of all, the Bible teaches that there is no greater love than someone laying down their life for another.
Well, guess what? That is exactly what God did for each of us! Jesus, the Son of God, died for our sins, in our place, a horrific death on a cross, all because of love! That’s how precious we are to God. That’s how much God loves us. That is a fatherly love that would do anything for his child.
Picture the beauty of His love for you right now. Ponder the wonder of His grace, that God Almighty would value you and I that much. He so deeply desires an intimate “Father and child” relationship with each one of us. Even if you were the only person on planet earth, God would have died for you alone to show you His immense love!
Know and celebrate God’s personal and intimate love for you today! Recognize how valuable and precious you are to Him. It’s a gift! It can never be earned by anything you do! It is always freely given! That’s just who God is! Amazing, right?
