“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8 (KJV)
The value of a product is usually determined by the cost that went into its production. In the same vein, the value of a born again Christian is the precious blood of Christ. It cost God His only begotten Son to redeem mankind from the penalty of sin. His giving of His only begotten Son for the sin of mankind is undoubtedly the proof that God indeed loved the world of sinners (John 3:16). Thus, as a Christian, never demean yourself or give people the opportunity to look down on you.
Any time you feel a demeaning spirit around you, rebuke it and quickly declare, “I’m worth the blood of Jesus Christ. I’m very precious to God.” As you keep declaring it, that feeling will give way to confidence in you. Now that you are born again, you are righteous, so be bold to declare that you are righteous (2 Corinthians 5:21). Never say that you are a sinner or a sinner saved by grace because you sometimes commit sin. When you sin and are convicted by the Holy Spirit, confess it quickly and ask God to forgive you and He will forgive you (1 John 1:9).
Dear beloved, now that God has demonstrated His love for you, make up your mind to also love God and your fellow human beings, and sin will not have dominion over you. If your job is making you look down on yourself, change it into something you love and that will draw you closer to God, and He will make you a blessing. Hallelujah! Be an overcomer!
Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, I love You for feeding me with Your Word today. If while I was a sinner You demonstrated Your love for me by sending Jesus Christ to die for me, now that I’m born again I know Your love for me will be much more. Please lead me to also love You and show love to my fellow human beings in Jesus’ name. Amen!
