Jesus Honors You

by Max Lucado

It is good to…sing praises to Your name…to declare Your loving kindness in the morning.” Psalm 92 1-2 (NKJV)

Listen closely.  Jesus’ love does not depend upon what we do for him.  Not at all.  In the eyes of the King, you have value simply because you are.  You don’t have to look nice or perform well.  Your value is inborn.

Think about that for just a minute.  You are valuable just because you exist.  Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are.  Remember that the next time you are left bobbing in the wake of someone’s steamboat ambition.  Remember that the next time some trickster tries to hang a bargain basement price tag on your self-worth.  The next time someone tries to pass you off as a cheap buy, just think about the way Jesus honors you…and smile.

I do.  I smile because I know I don’t deserve love like that.  None of us do.
