Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life... he who feeds on this bread will live forever" (John 6:35 & 58)

Worthy Is The Lamb Who Was Slain

In business, an item is only worth what a buyer is willing to spend.  It's like wanting to get a new pair of shoes... until you look at the price tag.  You don't buy them because they aren't worth it; you decide the cost is too high. 

So what exactly are you worth?  How much was God Himself willing to pay?  What does He determine your value to be?  He has already told you:

I AM willing to leave Heaven, be born in a barn, and swaddled amongst the flies and feces.  I AM willing to submit myself to fallible parents, corrupt governments and live as a mere man.  I AM willing to be dirty, get sick, and experience pain just so we can be together.  I AM willing to know hunger, fatigue, thirst and weakness.  I AM willing to be insulted, struck, and spat upon for you.  You mean so much to Me that I will let them pull out My hair, tear at My beard, beat thorns into My brow, and rip open My back.  I love you so much that after all this suffering, it still isn't enough to fully demonstrate just how precious you are to Me.  I will even allow Myself to be nailed to a Roman Cross alongside thieves, become your sins and give My life in exchange for yours.  I AM willing to live and die - paying the ultimate price for you... THAT is how much you are worth to Me!

"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." - John 15:13
