How important are you…

Posted on Posted in Potential, Value

                                                … to God!

God created everything we can see,
      – the visible and the invisible –
in its most intricate detail and beauty,
But when God created man He went even further,
– He made man in His image and likeness –
Because God is life
… and He wants us to share in that life.

      I am the resurrection and the life.
      He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
      John 11 25

Yes, we are all important to God,
as David wrote …

      What is man that You are mindful of him,
      And the son of man that You visit him?
      For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
      And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
      You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
      You have put all things under his feet,
      Psalm 8 4-7

What does that mean in our lives?

God wants to be part of our lives,
… in fact He wants to live life through us.
And as I allow Him into my life,
… and as I open myself up to Him,
His life becomes real in me.
And …

      I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
      Phil 4 13
