What do you usually do with priceless treasures? Do you grind them up and use them as gravel for your driveway?
Usually precious jewels are placed up high and out-of-reach, safe from getting dirty, and are never used for common purposes.
Additionally, most people get insurance for them too, right?
Well, you are a brilliant gem in God’s eyes too, a gem that He paid an amazing price (Jesus) for.
He did this simply because He loves you (He doesn’t want to use you for gravel!) and cares for you intensely—as intensely as someone who takes extreme care of their jewels.
You are lifted high in Jesus, and you never get spiritually dirty; rather, you remain completely holy, being in Him.
Since you are His jewel, Jesus has also insured (guaranteed) that you will be conformed into His same image, and it is all His doing!
What a relief it is to know that your eternal security and holiness is not based on how saintly you act, but depends entirely on His work that’s fulfilled in you, in Christ. So take a load off, and rest knowing that He already sees you as a beautiful one-of-a-kind treasure of His making that can’t be replaced.
You are so precious to Him, and His thoughts of nurturing you are innumerable!
