Something to think about.
Something of Value
1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
What is the value of God? I have never heard that question before. What is God worth? We make value judgments regularly. Ironic, a question that is never asked is consistently answered by our choices. We place a value on God by our expressions and behavior. How we value God is as apparent as the air we breathe.
So let us discuss the value of God. Since I can only discuss the value of God from my perspective, let me share my vision of God. First, my God is perfect. Which means there is no flaw in Him. Which means he never arrived at perfection because that would mean that at some time or place in His existence he was imperfect which would then make him less than perfect. To be perfect implies that His existence, which lies beyond my comprehension has always been perfect. Which also indicates He will always be perfect. Secondly, my God exists outside the constraints of matter, time and space. He lives or exists outside our little bubble of existence. Thirdly, He is all-powerful, which is not a statement of power as much as it is a statement of our lack of understanding of what His power is. My God is all-knowing which by definition means He is always existent. He is present in every situation passed, present and future at the same time and is involved in every situation at all times. My God is all-knowing, which means He knows things we do not. Which means whatever conclusions we come up with that are contrary to His nature are wrong. Regardless of the titles, degrees, and accomplishments of the one saying otherwise. My God is the final authority there is nothing that can oppose his judgments. In every area, God is higher, bigger, stronger wiser than anything man can come up with. He is bigger and more powerful than all of humanity combined. God is the ruler of this existence.
This is the God that created the world. He created the world solely for the purpose of communing with man. He did not do for our intellect, our resourcefulness, our strength, our beauty or our adoration of Him. He did it because he loved us.
He created everything we need to live from the environment to food, to shelter, to companionship to intellect. God is beyond what our feeble minds can comprehend. He will ultimately make the final decision on our existence. His sovereignty is completed without the possibility of contention.
When He breathed into Adam, He shared a part of His immortal existence with us. We are alive because of His spirit of life which He breathed into Adam. That same breath has ignited the life of every human being since the creation of Adam.
He created it all, everything. How do you or I place a value on the being that brought everything into existence? Yet we do. We do it in a variety of ways by ignoring Him by denying Him by claiming we are self-created. We can also define His value by our adoration of Him our recognition of Him our submission to Him. By loving Him by obedience and by repentance. Realistically we cannot put a value on God because we do not know Him fully. We can’t put a value on Him because He is priceless. He is worth more than anything in existence because He created everything in existence including you. Though we do not know Him fully, we know enough to recognize and grant Him the honor, obedience, reverence, and love he is entitled to. Without fully knowing Him, He is at the pinnacle of value. He is to be glorified for what He has already done. He need not do anymore, and still, His value would not be diminished. Recognized or not His value is not dependent on humanity. He is priceless and of undefinable value whether or not we acknowledge Him.
Just because we can’t put a definitive value on God is not a reason to dismiss Him. Or deny His value in our lives this moment, today. He is our savior. He is the Alpha and Omega, He is what sustains us and gives us life. We exist because of His conscious decision for us to live. His value is expressed in our existence. God is responsible for your existence. Everything you need to live to exist and flourish was made by God long before you came to be. The furthest planet the biggest star the unknown of outer and inner space was created so you could exist. He expended unimaginable power wisdom and creativity just so you could live. His value supersedes everything we hold dear. The value of God is that He exists throughout, before and after time.
