Everyone matters to God.
We place a high value on our own lives.
The world seems to value life less and less.
“So God created humankind in His image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.” [Genesis 1:27]
“…we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” [Ephesians 2:10]
We are valuable because God knows us.
- Luke 12:7
- Psalm 139:1-10
We are valuable even before we are born.
- Psalm 139:13-16
- Jeremiah 1:4-5
If life is to be sanctified (considered holy) according to God, we need to recognize the value He places on life – all life – from beginning to end.
“He Himself bore our sins in His body on a tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness. By His wounds, you have been healed.” [1 Peter 2:24]
