Grace and Truth and Knowing Your Worth

Where does our worth come from?

If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time you probably said, “Jesus” and possibly rolled your eyes. It’s become a rote answer. Something we say without thinking.

It’s not that we don’t believe it, it’s that it’s become a pat answer. The youth pastor at our church calls Jesus the “safe Sunday school answer.” You can answer any question with Jesus, even if you didn’t hear it and most likely be right. Even if you don’t understand it.

But in reality, Jesus is so much more.

Knowing Your Worth…

Once upon a time there was a woman who found her worth in Jesus. The End.

I took a road trip with a friend this week (okay, a friend drove me to an out-of-town doctor appointment), and we stopped by a neat roadside store where I found a shirt I loved. They didn’t have it in my size, so I bought it for my daughter. When I got home and showed it to my husband he said he loved it, but she probably wouldn’t get it.

And I had to stop and think. My kids love Jesus, my girls especially. But do they really find their worth in Jesus?

So, when I was reading through the posts that were linked up last week and came across Debbie’s, I knew it was the one I had to share. She shares three ways to know your worth. These aren’t pat answers, they are ways to build a strong foundation.

    1. Oh my goodness, Debbie. I was re-reading my post and caught a typo. I meant to say that your post wasn’t pat answers. I have corrected it. Please forgive my poor editing skills.
