A Priceless Treasure

priceless treasure

Amidst the lies from Hollywood, television, magazines and social media, we often lose site of this one truth:

We are Priceless Treasures, Ransomed by the blood of Jesus.

We get caught up trying to please others, in one way or the other, and forget that Jesus is the only One Who was pleased with us enough to pay the ultimate ransom to set us free from the lies that bind us.

Over the years I have heard a recurring theme from woman around the world.  We’re all struggling to embrace Truth about these earthen vessels we’ve been given!

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 4:7, “But this beautiful treasure is contained in us—cracked pots made of earth and clay—so that the transcendent character of this power will be clearly seen as coming from God and not from us.”

We are Priceless Treasures!

Perfection isn’t what makes a treasure priceless, it’s creator does! The care put into crafting something; the passion and love contained in each stroke, bend, or melt. The time and sacrifice of the creator makes the unique one-of-a-kind treasure priceless.

Jesus, as our Creator, is the Beholder of beautiful, and when He says, “It is good” He means it.

When we reject His truth about us, we make a mockery of Him.  By embracing the lies, we are telling Him that what He did for us on the Cross, the ransom He paid for us, wasn’t enough; that He should have done more! {that’s a painful realization!}

* * * *

We may have been lied to from the time we were children; told we were lazy, wouldn’t amount to anything, or that we were ugly.

We may have been wounded in ways no one, or few people know.

We may still be embracing the lies spoken over us, but we have a choice, right here and now.

We can either continue embracing the lies of the enemy, or we can surrender those lies to the Savior & embrace His truth!

We are Priceless Treasures

Jesus didn’t pay the ultimate ransom for trash, He paid it for treasure: for you and for me. He paid it because He saw a vessel He could use for his glory. A vessel, cracked with the frailty of humanity, yet when fully yielded to Him is Priceless & Pleasing in His sight. Through our cracks and imperfections, the Creator shines His light in the most beautiful ways. 2 Corinthians 12:9-11

Whatever lies you have held on to about who you are, what you are, or how you look, now is your time to surrender them to the Savior & embrace His truth:

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

YOU ARE CHERISHED

YOU ARE LOVED

YOU ARE A PRICELESS TREASURE
