What makes a masterpiece valuable?
1. Length of time it took to create
2. Materials it was made out of
3. Craftmanship that went in to it
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
What truly assigns value to something?
Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s masterpiece. He created us answer in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
2. Sentimental Value-
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your worries and cares to God because He cares about you.
3. Joy received
Hebrew 12:2 Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and protector of our faith. For the joy set before Him, He endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
4. What someone is willing to pay for it.
Matthew 13:44 Again the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found a hid; and for joy over it, he goes and sells all the he has and buys that field. Again the Kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all the he had for it.
“The true way you can know you are valuable, is that Jesus paid everything He had to purchase you!”
Soon afterward, Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went along with him. As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out—the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the town was with her. When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.”
Then he went up and touched the bier they were carrying him on, and the bearers stood still. He said, “Young man, I say to you, get up!” The dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
