Fearfully & Wonderfully Made
January 21, 2018
The third sermon in a series of messages from the book of Psalms. This week, we look at a passage from Psalm 139 to discuss God's intimate knowledge of each of us from before we were conceived and the unique nature that each of us have as ones created in the image of God.
Psalm 139:13-16 ... For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
Your value is not found in your NET worth… but rather to WHOM you belong
1. Value is determined by PURPOSE
Psalm 139:14, I praise You…
2. Value is determined by CRAFTSMANSHIP
Psalm 139:14, …for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
3. Value is determined by PRICE
1st Corinthians 6:20, Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
Challenge: Value all life … Show dignity to the ELDERLY. Invest in the YOUNG. Protect the UNBORN.
