Your True Identity
By Josh McDowell and Ben Bennett
You are infinitely valuable, irreplaceable, and indispensable (1 Corinthians 12:22) because God gave His only Son to reconcile you to Himself, paying an incalculable ransom that says that you are infinitely valuable. Your value wasn’t created by Jesus’s death on the cross; it was shown by Jesus’s death on the cross. At Calvary, God declared to Heaven, hell, and the whole earth that you are worth the gift of Jesus Christ, His dearly loved Son. If you ever put a price tag on yourself, it would have to read “Jesus,” because that is what God paid to save you (see 1 Corinthians 6:19–20; 1 Peter 1:18–19). Your value isn’t derived from anything you have done or can do; it is not a self-created value. You are of great value because that’s who our loving God created you to be. Humility is knowing who you are and who made you who you are and giving God the glory. Your value cannot be determined by other people—not even yourself. Only your Creator can determine the value of His creation.
