According to Webster, the archaic definition of the word worth is “having monetary or material value”.
What exactly am I worth to God? I think this thought is worth pondering for five minutes.
People who know me may say I am not worth a dime. I have heard that statement in reference to other people; surely, the same has been stated about me.
I hope that my husband and my children would assess me as worthy to die for. I know I would gladly give up my life for theirs.
A valuator can only assess property based on what he or she can observe i.e. a house or a car. Therefore, my fellow sisters and brothers rate my worth on the external. What they see and hear from my carnal being.
Jesus has x-ray vision. He sees me inside and out. He looks at my heart. Remember, what he told Samuel when he was checking out Jesse’s boys to see which one was worthy of being anointed king. God had chosen David because he knew his heart. Can you visualize one of those other boys trying to conquer Goliath?
Jesus’ death on the cross is proof that he thought I was worth saving. He was willing to pay the price for my redemption.
“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” Galatians 3:13
