This blog serves as a reminder of God’s unconditional love and His grace & mercy which is given to us afresh every morning. He knows what you need today and will provide you will the grace to get through it, if you lean into Him and depend fully on His strength it will lighten your burden and it will enable you to complete your duties.
“Your worth is based on the value God has placed on you. You are not defined by your past, your failures, what someone else said you’re worth, what you think you’re worth, your accomplishments, what you own, the way you look or by any other value this world or its people have or have not placed on you. Your value is forever engraved in the stone that is the Father’s love and He declares, “I am yours and you are mine.” And, He affirms, “you will be my people, and I will be your God.” Jeremiah 30:22. Your value today, and forever, rest in this truth alone—By grace you are a loved son, a loved daughter, of God. In Jesus Christ this is true of you. But the enemy will not simply let you go. He will remind you every day of who you used to be. But God tells you who you are.
God chose you because He saw His own image in you, the divine stamp woven into the fabric of your being when He uniquely knitted your frame together in secret. And He decided you were worth a rescue mission of love that would require the death of His own Son.” –Louie Giglio
1 Timothy 4:11-16 is the key passage:
“Teach these things and insist that everyone learn them. Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. Until I get there, focus on reading the Scriptures to the church, encouraging the believers, and teaching them. Do not neglect the spiritual gift you received through the prophecy spoken over you when the elders of the church laid their hands on you. Give your complete attention to these matters. Throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone will see your progress. Keep a close watch on how you live and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right for the sake of your own salvation and the salvation of those who hear you.”
