What is Your value?

Did you know that they have actually discovered Transparent Gold? No really, they did. Today they use it inside the windshields of planes (a film of transparent Gold sits in between 2 plate glasses because of its flexibility and its use as a defogger for high altitudes).
For Centuries people mocked Revelations 21:18-"The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. "
and 21-"The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass".

If only a FILM in between those 2 plates cost $25,000, how much is God investing in the city He will be making here?

And who is He making that city for?

And who is worth more, the one who walks upon it, or the one being walked upon?

YOU are worth Everything more than a city!
On Earth, life is not worth much. We base people's self worth on their success, and their success based on their money.
God knows your value though. He is the Only being in the World who can understand your value.

Lets think of it this way, the value of an object goes up when the availability/access/number goes down-correct?
Ex: If there are 5 Volkswagen Beetles in the world, their price would be pretty sky high.
But now imagine a truck that was carrying 3 of them went off the road and they were all there are only 2 left.
What is the price of those last 2 left now?
But then, lets say their is only ONE. What is the price?
The value of that item is determined by what price someone is willing to pay for it.

So let me ask you, reader, this,
How many of YOU are there?

Answer: Only ONE.

You are the ONLY you there is, ever has been, or ever could be. You Are IT.
Not even God could make another you-seriously. To make another you, you would have to recreate every decision you have ever faced in your life-but the second God makes those decisions for you, they are no longer yours.
God has made YOU so that YOU can make YOU who YOU want to be!
Surely He is worthy of your praise and gratitude, yes?

You are not the only Actual you, you are the only Possible you. And that makes you Priceless.
You are irreplaceable, even by God.

So I am serious when I say You are Gods only Shot at winning YOU.

Your salvation is Gods eternal Treasure.
Your condemnation is His eternal Loss.

If you choose not to follow God, and you are not saved, it will be more painful to God than it will be for you.
Think of it! You will be dead. Gone. No More.
The pain is for those who are left.
And since God knows who you were,
He knew what you COULD have been.
His pain would be the sharpest.

Your pain is momentary.
Gods pain is Eternal.

No saved person can fill the empty spot God has in His heart special for YOU. They have filled their spot,
You are the only one who can fill Your own.

And going back to the car example, who was the one willing to pay the price for you-and what price did they pay?

God paid the BIGGEST price of all to try and save you and woe you back to Him. He payed the price of His own Blood.
Ask yourself, how much money would it take to buy God? Stop laughing.
What is God worth? He is Infinitely valuable.

But wait...His life, was your price...
What then is your price?

Don't think so? It doesn't really matter! What really matters is that God knows your value, and He has spoken. Matter of fact, He has done much more than that, He Has DIED- That You MIGHT LIVE.

God said I Rather go to Hell FOR YOU
Than be in Heaven WITHOUT YOU.

Decide This day who you will serve.

1 Corinthians 7:23-
"God paid a high price for you, so don't be enslaved by the world."
