He believes that we are worth the death of His son, even if we don’t believe in Him
”But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 (KJV).
As we address each of these fears, we will keep in mind the definition God uses to define our worth when we belong to Him. He defines His children not by what they do, but by who they are. Because of what His son did on the cross, believers are defined as deeply loved, totally forgiven, fully pleasing, accepted and complete.
It doesn’t mean that we can’t accomplish, achieve and work on improving our relationships with others. It just means that we do all of the above with a different motive. “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men…” Colossians 3:23 (KJV)
Our calling is to a life without fear. That will occur only if we operate from God’s definition of what defines our worth.
