Topic: Prized Possession [Wednesday, 10th May 2017]
He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession. James 1:18
One thing that you, as a Christian, must never forget is that you are God’s most important possession. God placed a premium on you, that was why He gave up Jesus as the sacrifice to redeem you.
The blood of Jesus is the highest price God could afford. There is no other price that trumps Christ’s blood. It is the only and highest price. Yet God paid this for you.
The truth is, God could not afford to see the apogee of His creation wallow in darkness and headed for destruction. God could not stand the sight of seeing you fail and struggle through life and then end up in hell. You are just too precious to Him.
He loves you too much to turn a blind eye. That was why He did not bat an eyelid when He gave His only begotten Son to be the atoning sacrifice for your sins (1 John 2:2). You were bought with a price and that price is the blood Jesus (1 Corinthians 7:23).
God chose to give birth to us anew, so He gave us His Word. No wonder scriptures says in 1 Peter 1:23 that “you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.”
This is because, “out of all creation, you became God’s prized possession” (James 1:18). And because you are God’s prized possession, God is committed to your all round success and prosperity. You can trust Him to produce His glory in and through you. You are God’s topmost priority.
Keep winning daily.
Thank You Lord for loving me and making me Your prized possession. I live with this consciousness, knowing that You are committed to my success and all round prosperity. Thanks Lord for Your love, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
