Consider this. In 1957, a brand new, Chevrolet Bel Air (the automobile commonly referred to as the “57 Chevy”) could be purchased for around $3,000.00. Today, sixty years later, the same vehicle, even in the worst condition, would cost at least $6,000.00, but when the classic has been fully RESTORED, it sells, sometimes, for over 60,000.00!
Jesus, over 2000 years ago, saw enough value, in a classic, created by God, called Man, that he paid the ultimate price (gave his life at Calvary) for its full RESTORATION!
You have always been valuable to God. That is why He has gone to such extremes to make you his own, and now that you have been fully RESTORED, you received the benefit of “value added”! Don’t let anyone tell you that you are worthless, when God says, you are priceless!
“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” 2 Corinthians 4:7 (KJV)
