YOU HAVE VALUE. Certainly God has ascribed a value to mankind, for we are made in His image. You are a fearfully and wonderfully, uniquely made creation. Did not Jesus say, “You have more value than the sparrows”? The Greek definition of “value” is “to differ from, in a more excellent way”.
Certainly humans differ from the animals. But here’s where today’s Christians have gone astray and sprinkled self esteem fairy dust over everything- you are a lump of clay, which has value because of its created potential, but that value has to be enABLED.
God told Jeremiah to go down to the potter’s house and watch the clay being formed, “”O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter?” says the LORD. “Look, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel!” Jeremiah 18:6 Every lump of clay has the ability to become something great and beautiful, but God has to get His hands on you to enable that value. The washing of water by the Word, the blood of Jesus and the Holy Spirit soften that lump of clay and enABLE it to become a valuABLE vessel of honor. God puts the ABLE in the value.
There are vessels of honor and vessels of dishonor, which will you allow the Master Potter to make you into? No Potter makes you still a lump. You are only as valuable as you enable the Potter to mold you, “So are you in My hands”. #runyourrace
