Many folks go through times when they struggle with their value. They feel unimportant to others and to God.

Well, there are MANY verses and principles in the Bible that state that every single person (those who follow Jesus and those who don’t) have incredible value (Genesis 1:26-27 tells us that every human being [flawed as we are] bear the image of God).

But, for the follower of Christ, there is even more value piled on top! In this morning’s Bible reading, I came across Colossians 2:9-10 where it tells us that every bit of God the Father was in Jesus … and that those who are saved have every bit of Jesus inside of them.

Colossians 2:9-10 (ESV)
“For in him (Jesus) the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily, and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.” 

Christian, we can draw at least two helpful principles from these verses:
1) God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit fully abide in you. So, you are never, ever alone.
2) God fully abides in you because you are His temple (1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19; 2 Corinthians 4:7). In your body, you carry around the God of all Creation. Because of who resides inside of you, you are of infinite worth my friend. Realize that your incredible worth comes from your intimate relationship with God, thank Him, and don’t ever forget it.
