It’s the quickest, most effective way to a depressed result. Comparisons with others are the prime vehicle to this end-point, or dabbling again in a past guilt, shame or sin.
Let’s not forget who bought us; if we believe Christ, we are one in him; we are won to him.
A high price was paid for us—Jesus died so our sin would not be a barrier excluding us from a relationship with the Father. Sometimes we need to be reminded of this.
Worth is a thing no longer in contention; not one single person alive, or dead for that matter, is of less worth than Christ dying for their sin.
No matter what we do or don’t do in this life, we are unable to shake or de-shackle from this fact. This fact is beyond all our deeds; what we think and say.
Accept the work of the cross. Accept the unique worth implicit in being you.
