Episode Notes


God says not only are your greatly loved, He says you are extremely valuable. How much do you think you're worth? I'm not talking about your net worth; I'm talking about your self worth. Don't ever confuse your valuables with your value as a person. You can be rich or poor but it has nothing to do with your value as a person.

 The worth of something depends on who ___________________ it.

 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day.  (Psalm 139:13-16 – Msg)

 The worth of something depends on what is _____________ for it.

 God paid a great price for you. So don’t become slaves of anyone else. (1 Corinthians 7:23 – CEB)

 A high price has been paid for your freedom, so don’t devalue God’s investment by becoming a slave to people. (1 Corinthians 7:23 – Voice)

 For God has bought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God because he owns it.  (1 Corinthians 6:20 – LB)

 You know that a price was paid to redeem you from following the empty ways handed on to you by your ancestors; it was not paid with things that perish (like silver and gold),  but with the precious blood of the Anointed, who was like a perfect and unblemished sacrificial lamb. (1 Peter 1:18-19 - Voice)

 It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in. He paid with Christ’s sacred blood, you know . . . And this was no afterthought. God always knew he was going to do this for you. (1 Peter 1:18-19 - Msg)

 The worth of something depends on who ___________________ it.

 Have you forgotten that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you, and that you are not the owner of your own body? You have been bought, and at what a price! Therefore bring glory to God both in your body and your spirit, for they both belong to him.  (1 Corinthians 6:20 – PH)

 Look at the birds! They don’t worry about what to eat—they don’t need to sow or reap or store up food—for your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are.  (Matthew 6:26 – LB)

 Aren’t two sparrows sold for only a penny? But your Father knows when any one of them falls to the ground.  Even the hairs on your head are counted. So don’t be afraid! You are worth much more than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29-31 –CEV)

The worth of something depends on the _________________ of it.

 For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10 – NLT)

 Christ arrives right on time to make this happen. He didn’t, and doesn’t, wait for us to get ready. He presented himself for this sacrificial death when we were far too weak and rebellious to do anything to get ourselves ready. And even if we hadn’t been so weak, we wouldn’t have known what to do anyway. We can understand someone dying for a person worth dying for, and we can understand how someone good and noble could inspire us to selfless sacrifice. But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.  (Romans 5:6-8 – Msg)
