A True Evaluation of Your Worth
“But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth. And it was for this he called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. So then, brethren, stand firm …” – II Thessalonians 2:13-15a
Do you struggle with a feeling of unworthiness? Then listen carefully: God doesn’t roll his eyes when he thinks of you. Your salvation is no afterthought. God isn’t grudgingly cracking the doors of heaven to let you slip in.
His word here reminds us that we – each and every one of us! – are:
* beloved by the Lord
* chosen for salvation
* sanctified by the Spirit
* destined for glory!
Worthless? No way! God has given us a true evaluation of our worth – signed in blood and sealed with love!
