As God Sees Them

 

‘You are a letter from Christ.’ 2 Corinthians 3:3 NIV

Peter: Mr. Motormouth. Thomas: Mr. ‘Show-Me’. James and John: Storm Snr and Storm Jnr. Judas: enough said. When you consider Jesus’ disciples, the word ‘dysfunctional’ comes to mind. But Jesus wasn’t put off. Like finding treasure in a pile of scrap, He saw their potential, drew it out and developed it.

And, no matter how dysfunctional you think you are, that’s your story too! Paul writes, ‘You are a letter from Christ… written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God.’ Other people don’t write your story. Even you don’t. ‘The Spirit of the living God’ is writing it. That means your best days are still ahead!

An old Bible lay on a bargain table along with hundreds of tattered books. A lot of people had picked it up and thumbed through its pages. It wasn’t in very good shape—certainly not worth very much—so it was cast aside. Then a man picked it up, stifled a shout and, rushing to the counter, he paid a few dollars for it. Turns out it was an original Gutenberg Bible, centuries old, estimated to be worth over a million! How many times did it change hands before its value was recognised? How many times did the world cast it aside, unaware of its value?

The truth is, we were all passed over until Jesus saw value in us. But rather than paying bargain price, He paid the highest price possible. ‘While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’ (Romans 5:8 NIV) So when you’re having a bad day, look in the mirror and remind yourself, ‘God loves me calvary-worth!’ Then go out and try to see others as treasures God couldn’t live without; sinners Christ died to redeem.

SoulFood: Gen 24:1–51, 2 Cor 6:14–7:1
