Restoring Hope

“God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life .... And the ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. God chose him as your ransom long before the world began.” (1 Peter 1:18-20a NLT) 

Wealth, popularity, and fame will never bring you value. They’re too temporary.

Ultimately, something’s value is measured by how much another person will give up for it. If that’s the measurement, your value is out of this world. The creator of the universe gave his only Son for you!

Can you imagine anyone paying a higher price for anything? The Bible says, “God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life .... And the ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. God chose him as your ransom long before the world began” (1 Peter 1:18-20a NLT).

Once you internalize the truth that God sent his Son to die for you, you should never again struggle with self-esteem. God himself has eternally clarified your value. You were worth dying for. You were worth going through all the pain of the cross. You were worth having nails driven into Jesus’ hands.

You matter. Jesus said he’d rather die than live without you. That’s why the Bible says this in 1 Peter 2:17: “Respect everyone, and love your Christian brothers and sisters.” God loves everyone you meet. You’ll never meet anybody that Jesus Christ didn’t die for — whether they’re believers or non-believers; young or old; Republicans, Democrats, or independents.

A person’s value doesn’t come from sex, physical beauty, wealth, fame, or power. Value comes from something deeper. You were made for more.
