Ephesians 5:2And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
- We sinned and heaped up a debt to God.
- Jesus Christ was the ransom (debt) that was paid.
- The Ransom was paid to GOD (our Father)
- We owe Christ our lives!
- Your value = Christ
If your value was Christ before you did anything for Him, and your value can never be MORE than Christ, it stands to reason that you have value because of your creator places value on you because of what HE did, not you.
Therefore, you can not gain a higher value by doing more
Therefore your efforts to be more loved are futile. Any effort to gain love or value are futile.
BECAUSE OF YOUR VALUE, YOU SHOULD NOT WANT TO DISGRACE IT. (Not because you want value)
