How do we know we are
important to God?
Some reading this will only know and see God as a being to
be feared and avoided at all costs. Reality is, He sees in us,
what we struggle to see in Him.
Throughout all the history of the world as recorded in the Old
Testament, God reveals Himself as someone who wants a
personal relationship with his created beings. Sadly, human
beings rejected God, believing they could make it in life on
their own, consequently, leaving God out of their lives.
Despite our rejection of Him, He has relentlessly
pursued humanity, continually urging us to come
back into the relationship.
But not only has humanity walked away from God, they have
continued over the centuries to mock Him, ridicule Him, use His
name in vain and worship man-made idols of stone instead. A lesser
God would have wiped out His creation and started again.
But humanity is so precious to God that He was
prepared to pay the ultimate cost to get it back. For the
consequence of our rejection of Him, He was prepared
to take the punishment Himself. He sent His son to earth
to live amongst us and allow Himself to be killed to pay
the cost of our rebellion.
Considering how much God loves His own son, how could anybody
say our life does not matter, when He was prepared to swap our lives
for the life of His own son?
It’s a no-brainer.
