I am Somebody!

I John 3:1 “How great is the love the Father hath lavished on us that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.”

Last week, I met a young woman who looked at me with sadness in her eyes and admitted that the she felt like a nobody in the eyes of God. She was so consumed with this thought that she was breaking down both physically and emotionally over it.
I also know a precious young man who tried all his life to attain what his father demanded for him to become. Because he made different choices, the father branded him as a failure and the son believed him.
I shared with these broken spirits the truth about whom they are in Jesus. God’s children are worth so much in His sight. Look at the phrase in the verse above,
“lavished on us.” The word lavish means to be extravagant or to bestow profusely.
Recently, I told a group of children the story of the “runaway son” from Luke 15. It is a perfect picture of this phrase in action. After the son had squandered all his money, thoughts of home filled his mind and he headed home. I told the children he was dirty and smelled like pigs. Still, his father took him in his arms and lavished him with his love. One little girl looked at me with searching eyes and asked “even if he was dirty?”
“Yes,” I responded “even if he was dirty.”
Do you feel like “junk?” Remember this; if you have accepted Him as your Savior, you are a child of the King. Your price is far above rubies. You are the apple of His eye! Stand tall in your robe of righteousness and declare; I am Somebody!
