“How much am I worth”

How the cross untangles our self-worth.

1 Chronicles 25-27: “Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, who formed you from the womb: ‘I am the Lord, who made all things, who stretched out the heavens alone, who spread out the earth – Who was with me?’” Is. 44:24Is. 44:24

24 Así dice Jehová, tu Redentor, que te formó desde el vientre: «Yo Jehová, que lo hago todo, que despliego yo solo los cielos, que extiendo la tierra por mí mismo;

Do we want to know the greatness of our redeemer? One way is to contemplate the universe, since he created it.  God said through Isaiah, “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” Is. 1:18Is. 1:18

18 »Venid luego, dice Jehová, y estemos a cuenta:v aunque vuestros pecados sean como la grana, como la nieve serán emblanquecidos; aunque sean rojos como el carmesí, vendrán a ser como blanca lana.

  In the blood of Jesus, God has recreated the world.  Even greater than the universe was this creative act of the cross. “…that is, God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.” 2 Cor. 5:192 Cor. 5:19

19 Dios estaba en Cristo reconciliandoo consigo al mundo, no tomándoles en cuenta a los hombres sus pecados, y nos encargó a nosotros la palabra de la reconciliación.

Even when mankind messed up and broke that relationship with God, God sought to make things right again with His favorite creation, man.   

I would like to make one thing clear that is, God does not love me because I am worth it.  He loves me even though I’m not, I was dead in my sins.  Am I precious to Him? Infinitely so!  Does Christ’s death for us show us that He infinitely values us? Yes!  But His death was not prompted by our worth, but by His love Eph 2:4Eph 2:4

The adulterous woman, crying at Jesus’ feet, loved much because she was forgiven much Luke 7:47Luke 7:47

47 Por lo cual te digo que sus muchos pecados le son perdonados, porque amó mucho; pero aquel a quien se le perdona poco, poco ama.

, not because Jesus looked at her and said, “You deserve it!”   We don’t deserve His mercy.  If we did, it would no longer me mercy.

The cross untangles the mess and gives us our true sense of self-worth based on the price God put on our lives in the cross of Christ.
