1 Corinthians 1:28-30

 

 

It's so easy for us to feel like we're Nobodies in this world. As if we are just kind of a faceless entity that moves through the day without any meaning, without any true interaction with anyone. We can just go home and be there. It can just seem like we're nobodies going nowhere, and meaning nothing to anyone. But that is not what God says. The words today come from 1 Corinthians 1:28-30, "God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things - and the things that are not - to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God - that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption."

If today you're reading this, and you have given your life to Christ Jesus, if you have received Him into your life, if you have repented of your sin, you are someone. You are someone important to God, and those feelings that you're a Nobody just moving through this earth, and moving through this life aren't true. What God has done is he has taken those of us who are nothing in the eyes of this world. He's taken those of us who are despised, those of us who are lowly, and what he has done is he has enabled us to believe. Because of that, Christ Jesus himself has become wisdom for us. What that means is that he has become our righteousness, which means we're right with God. He has become our holiness, which means we've been made holy by God Himself. He has become our redemption, which means he has purchased us back for God. In this world, you may feel like you are nothing at all, but in the eyes of God, you are His child. Jesus Christ, and all that he is, guarantees that. So today, I am hoping it will give your life a lift knowing that you're the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, knowing that you're the holiness of God in Christ Jesus, and knowing that you have been redeemed by God in Christ Jesus.
