Our God created us. He loved us so much! But we are not worth anything to Him except for the fact that He seeks ‘true worshippers’ to love and worship Him. John 4:23 “…But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” We are totally worthless and even our righteousness to Him….is like filthy rags in His sight. “All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags….” Isaiah 6:4
Why should He love us so much? Enough to let His dear Son die on the cross to balance out our sins? We know it had to take something very precious, but it boggles the human mind! How pure and holy we should try to be because He deems us to be worth something!
God determined before the foundation of the world that Christ would come to earth and live in human form and that His brutal death on a cross would satisfy,in God’s sight,the worst sins that man could do, if man would repent and obey Him and live faithfully unto death. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world. (Revelation 13:8)
You can read the story line of that cross and that love, from Genesis through Revelation. You can read it ALL in a year’s time…reading 3-4 chapters per day…about 15 minutes of your time. It will mightily be worth your time!
