Do you ever feel like you’ve lost your muchness?
Do you ever question your value? Your personal worth? I think most of us would say, yes, at times we do.
It’s no wonder we struggle emotionally. As Earl Jabay, a mental hospital Chaplain has said, “No small part of the problems of those who receive treatment for emotional problems is that they have lost their sense of identity. As one put it, ‘I am looking for a feeling of somebodyness’.”
Muchness. Somebodyness. Identity. Worth. Value.
What is your value? You are worth the very blood of Jesus! God looked at you in your need and He offered Jesus, His only Son. There is no greater value He could place on you but the value of His Son. God’s value of you is never in question so a low sense of value must always and only be from Satan. You have the choice to refuse that lie and to believe what God says about you.
You were no people but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy but now you have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:10
The answer to human problems is a Person, the Person, Jesus Christ. His identity (in exchange for our old identity) makes us somebody. A new identity has been given to us. We are God’s own people. Christ’s kind of people. We belong to God.
In Christ, our muchness is secure. We are somebodies.
