Inherent Value…

“I think what we reinforce over and over again in Christian circles is that your value is based on how useful you are.

How much are you changing the world for God? How effective are you on the mission field? How well are you fulfilling your destiny?

We marinate in that thinking, and it transforms our vision of ourselves, so that we only see our value based on how much we are doing for God.

But that’s actually a false understanding of the gospel. God doesn’t NEED you to accomplish anything to be accepted by Him; you are inherently valuable in His eyes.”
