How do we know we are import-
ant 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
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.
