You Are Worth It

Matthew 26:27-28 (paraphrased from the NLT)
He took the cup and gave it to them saying, “Each of you drink from it, for this is my blood which confirms that you are God’s beloved.”

The Women of Faith conference this weekend was amazing.  There were inspiring speakers, plenty of laughter, music and praise and a beautiful message:

Believe that God treasures you.  Be filled with His love.  Believe Christ died because you are worth it.

No matter what your past looks like.  No matter what your life right now looks like.  God longs to have a relationship with you.  He wants to fill your heart with His love.  He created you, His precious child, and He wants to hold you in His arms.

In communion we remember that Jesus shed His blood so our sins are forgiven.  This Truth is universal but also extremely personal.  Jesus died for you.  He would have lived, suffered and died even if He only rescued you.  It is True.  As you accept the bread and cup, hear Jesus whisper to your soul “This is my blood, shed for you.  You are worth it!”
