What Makes YOU Important?

What makes YOU important?  What makes YOU special? What makes YOU good enough?  What makes YOUR LIFE matter??. . .  

I used to ask myself questions like this all the time and sometimes I still do! Maybe you have too. Or maybe you are afraid to ask questions like this because you don't want to hear the answers. Either way, you do not ever need to be afraid of questions like that. This is why:

#1 - You were created by God and for God.
Above all else, this is what makes your life important. Nothing will ever change that and nothing could ever change that because we have a God who is unchanging.

#2 - You are special and your life matters because He matters.
You are God's greatest creation and He is very pleased with you. He makes no mistakes, and he considers you a treasure to both himself and this world.

# 3 - You were made so special and unique that no one could ever take your place in this world.
The bible says that God knit you together in your mothers womb, and that there are things that He planned in advance for you to do! Even before you were born.. He had a purpose for you.

This might be new information to you or it might be old. Regardless, I think we all have some work to do in seeing ourselves and our lives through God's eyes. 

My Challenge: Is for you to prayerfully search the scriptures on these things. You'll be amazed by who you are because of God and who you can be because of CHRIST!
