Worth The Cost

It's Easter Sunday. Today more than ever before, I hope you know that God loves you! He created you for His pleasure.

Revelation 4:11 (NLT)

11 “You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created all things, and they exist because you created what you pleased.”

He chose to create you because you bring Him pleasure. Your life is no accident. I've often wondered why we have a hard time believing that God loves us and that He created us just because He wanted us. One thought I had was that we might not believe this because we don't feel worthy.

And why should we feel worthy? We have all messed up, right? No person is perfect. We are all sinful. Well, the good news of the Gospel is that Christ made up for our short comings by living a perfect life. He gave His life on a cruel cross to pay for our sin. God accepted the payment and Jesus was brought back to life as proof of that payment! He is now alive and has all authority in Heaven and on Earth.

When God see you, He sees past your imperfections because Christ paid the price for you!

This is the amazing truth of Easter.

God says you are worth the cost of His own Son!

This morning as you reflect on the good news of the resurrected Christ read through the following scripture. Be encouraged that your life has meaning, God says you are worth the cost, and He is asking that you seek Him first each and every day!

Ephesians 1:4–14 (NLT)

4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.

5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.

6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son.

7 He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.

8 He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.

9 God has now revealed to us his mysterious will regarding Christ—which is to fulfill his own good plan.

10 And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth.

11 Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.

12 God’s purpose was that we Jews who were the first to trust in Christ would bring praise and glory to God.

13 And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago.

14 The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him.
