You have extreme value in the eyes of God

 



YOU WERE FORMED IN THE WOMB BY GOD

(Psa 139:13-17 KJV)
For thou hast possessed my reins{Heb=interior organs, inner self}:
thou hast covered {Heb=to entwine, to join together} me in my mother's womb.
{14} I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
{15} My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret,
and curiously wrought{Heb=embroidered, fabricated} in the lowest parts of the earth.
{16} Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect;
and in thy book all my members were written,
which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
{17} How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

(Psa 71:5-9 KJV)
For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth.
{6} By thee have I been holden up from the womb:
thou art he that took me out of my mother's bowels:
my praise shall be continually of thee.
{7} I am as a wonder unto many; but thou art my strong refuge.
{8} Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
{9} Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.

YOU ARE GOD'S CHILD

(John 1:12-14 KJV)
But as many as received him,
to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name:
{13} Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
{14} And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

YOU ARE GOD'S GIFT TO CHRIST

(John 17:24-26 KJV)
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am;
that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me:
for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.
{25} O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee,
and these have known that thou hast sent me.
{26} And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it:
that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

YOU WERE AMONG THE LOST, BUT NOW YOU ARE FOUND BY GOD

(Luke 5:31-32 KJV)
And Jesus answering said unto them,
They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.
{32} I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

(Luke 15:4-7 KJV)
What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them,
doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness,
and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
{5} And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
{6} And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them,
Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
{7} I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth,
more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

(Luke 19:10 KJV)
For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

YOUR SINS AND TRANSGRESSIONS HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN

(Psa 32:1-2 KJV) A Psalm of David, Maschil.
Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
{2} Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no guile.

(Eph 1:7 KJV)
{Jesus Christ}, In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins,
according to the riches of his grace;

(Exo 33:17-20 KJV)
And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken:
for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.
{18} And he said, I beseech thee, show me thy glory.
{19} And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee,
and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee;
and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.
{20} And he said, Thou canst not see my face:
for there shall no man see me, and live.

YOU HAVE BEEN SET FREE BY THE SACRIFICE OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE CROSS

(Isa 61:1 KJV)
The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me;
because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek;
he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

(John 8:32 KJV)
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

(John 8:34-36 KJV)
Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
{35} And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
{36} If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

(Psa 19:12-14 KJV)
Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
{13} Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me:
then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
{14} Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight,
O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

NOTHING CAN SEPARATE YOU FROM THE LOVE OF GOD

(Rom 8:32-39 KJV)
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all,
how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
{33} Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth.
{34} Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again,
who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
{35} Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
{36} As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long;
we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
{37} Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
{38} For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come, {39} Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE HOLY SPIRIT AS A PROMISE OF HIS LOVE FOR YOU

(2 Cor 1:20-22 KJV)
For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
{21} Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;
{22} Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN FAITH AND SPIRITUAL GIFTS TO USE FOR THE BODY OF CHRIST

(Rom 12:3-8 KJV)
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you,
not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think;
but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
{4} For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
{5} So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
{6} Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us,
whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
{7} Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
{8} Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity;
he that ruleth, with diligence; he that showeth mercy, with cheerfulness.

YOU MAY PARTAKE OF THE DIVINE NATURE BY APPLYING THE PROMISES GOD HAS GIVEN US

(2 Pet 1:2-4 KJV)
Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
{3} According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
{4} Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises:
that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature,
having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

(John 1:12-13 KJV)
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on his name:
{13} Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man,
but of God.

YOU BEAR THE SPIRITUAL FRAGRANCE OF LIFE OR DEATH TO THOSE YOU MEET

(2 Cor 2:14-16 KJV)
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ,
and maketh manifest the savour{Grk=fragrance} of his knowledge by us in every place.
{15} For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
{16} To the one we are the savour of death unto death;
and to the other the savour of life unto life.
And who is sufficient for these things?

BELIEVING THE GOSPEL LEADS TO OBTAINING THE GLORY OF JESUS CHRIST

(2 Th 2:13-17 KJV)
But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord,
because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation
through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
{14} Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
{15} Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
{16} Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us,
and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
{17} Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

YOU HAVE THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

(Rom 8:19-23 KJV)
For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
{20} For the creature was made subject to vanity,
not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
{21} Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption
into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
{22} For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
{23} And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit,
even we ourselves groan within ourselves,
waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

THE BIBLE EXPLAINS ITSELF...The meaning of the term, "firstfruits" is found in these passages below:
Also Note: "The feast of ingathering" has been likened to a foreshadowing of the Rapture of Believers in the last days. For Israel, it is a foreshadowing of the call of Jews to return to the land of Israel, also to occur in the last days.

(Exo 23:14-17 KJV)
Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.
{15} Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread:
(thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib;
for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)
{16} And the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field:
and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.
{17} Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD.

(Exo 23:19a KJV)
The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the LORD thy God....
