How God Sees Us
We are loved and cherished by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Have you ever wondered how God sees you? Perhaps interactions with others have shaped how you believe you’re viewed. But in His Word, God tells us exactly how loved and cherished we are. Today’s passage describes just four of the many ways He sees us:
1. A Chosen People. God chose you and me to be part of His kingdom and family because He wants and loves us.
2. A Royal Priesthood. As believers, we are children of God and, therefore, part of a royal family. In other words, we are “heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ” (Rom. 8:17).
3. A Holy Nation. The church, or body of Christ, is a group of people who are holy—which, as we learned a few days ago, means “set apart” for the purposes of God. Our lives are never meaningless, because living for the Lord is the greatest purpose one can have.
4. A People for God’s Own Possession. You and I are precious possessions of God; we belong to Him (Deut. 14:2; Titus 2:14). He so values each of us that He sent His Son to die in our place.
Each of these descriptions shows how highly God values you. Make it a point to remember your real identity and to be mindful that you are cherished.
