Why your life is so precious?
Your life on this earth is indeed precious. It is so precious, that it is precious to God. Psalm 139:14 vs, I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are your works, And that my soul knows very well . Let's examine this particular verse closer. Notice, the psalmist started off by saying, I will praise you. Then the next few words were very powerful, For I am wonderfully made. First of all, life is a gift from God. Every life on this earth is precious. We must never take for granted our lives, for you are precious and valued. Unfortunately, if we are ignorant of this precious gift, we will squander it. We must understand that everyone has a purpose on this earth. Our purpose is not a mystery. Our real purpose is to serve God and one another. What I will say next may be a shock to you. You can only serve God by serving one another(Mark 10:45). Let's not get away from the topic: For I am fearfully made. So Genesis 1:27 vs, So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female. We as believers must know who we are in Christ. We must walk in confidence in God. We must respect one another differences. Even insulting a person by the way they look is a sin. It's a sin because it tampers with the image of God(Genesis 1:27). Unfortunately, we are living in a society that insults the image of God. Here is why, Magazines perpetuate this insult everyday. If a persons image doesn't fit the look that society says they should look like, they are ignored. So many people pursue images of what society says they should look like, that is unrealistic and down right oppressive. We must be comfortable in our own skin, not what people think we should be or look like. For God's wisdom is higher than man. You are so unique, that there is none before you or anyone after you. Other words, God makes originals not duplicates. Remember Psalm 139:14, YOU ARE AN ORIGINAL!!!
