A Different Perspective - December 21

 

Low Self Esteem

by Berni Dymet

Gal. 2:20 and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Last night, I spent a few hours with some students at a Bible College where I teach. We had a tutorial. Their assignment was to look at someone's life, someone who they knew who seemed to be having real problems - and just come and talk about those problems in the tutorial.

You know something - as each student spoke about a friend or a family member - it just came back to the same thing again and again.

Each of these people had a sense of worthlessness. Each one! I was blown away. You see we live in a society where the advertising industry conditions us to believe that we - you and I are at the centre of the universe! It's all about me!

Well - that's working incredibly well then, isn't it?!

You know how we know what we're really worth? You look at Jesus hanging on that cross. He died - for you and me.  What does God think we're worth?

The life of His only Son. Jesus.
