Never Be Thirsty Again

Christians must long to draw closer to God. If we are quenching our thirst at forbidden fountains, we have no reason to expect God to be satisfying. If we are not nourished by the bread from heaven, we will satiate ourselves with crumbs from the world. Once we have become addicted to the world’s nourishment, our appetite for God is spoiled.

We Are Valuable Because Christ Chose To Love Us

Believers were purchased at high cost; understandably, we are God’s property.  If the value of an object is determined by the price paid for it, then we are valuable indeed.  We are not purchased with silver and gold but with the costly blood of Christ.  The cross of Christ is an everlasting testimony to how much believers are actually worth to God!  Of course, we are not valuable in and of ourselves; we are valuable because he chose to love us. in choosing to die for us, our Lord affirmed that we are infinitely precious to him.
