“For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their Value. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake. Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory.”
God paid a ransom for me and you with the precious blood of His Son Jesus Christ. That tells us a lot. It tells us that we have Value! We are Valuable to the one who created us in His image. No matter what is going on in our life or the things we’ve done, He still considers us Valuable! Valuable enough to allow His Son to die for you and me.
Knowing this, a shift can take place in our hearts and minds. No matter what we face, or the news we just heard on the T.V., God calls us Valuable, so our perspective changes. We don’t have to allow the world to dictate our thoughts and emotions. We don’t have to allow the world to pull us down and destroy our hopes and dreams. Allow the outcome of every situation bring Glory to God!
“For my perspective changes my situations outcome to Glorify God. If you want to change your situation,
change your perspective and let God get all the Glory!”
