As we contemplate the beauty and mystery of Christ Jesus, let us also bask in the realization of our worth to Him. Meditate and contemplate the following statements which indicate the great worth Christ places on you.
I Am Significant
1. I am salt and light for everyone around me.
Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness?. . . Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. . . Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:13-16; Message Bible)
2. I am part of the true vine, joined to Christ and able to produce lots of fruit.
I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. (John 15:5; Message Bible)
3. I am handpicked by Jesus.
You did not choose me. I chose you and sent you out to produce fruit, the kind of fruit that will last. Then my Father will give you whatever you ask for in my name. (John 15:16; Contemporary English Version)
4. I am a house of God where the Holy Spirit lives.
Do you not know that you are a house of God and that the Holy Spirit lives in you?. . . Do you not know that your body is a house of God where the Holy Spirit lives? God gave you His Holy Spirit. Now you belong to God. You do not belong to yourselves. (1 Cor. 3:16; 6:19; New Life Version)
5. I am embraced and seated with Christ in heaven.
Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on his own, with no help from us! Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah. (Eph. 2:5-6; Message Bible)
6. I work together with God.
We work together with God, and we beg you to make good use of God’s kindness to you. (2 Cor. 6:1; Contemporary English Version)
7. God has made us what we are – to do good works.
God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing. (Ephesians 2:10; New Century Version)
