As human being we are valuable in the sight of God, because when he originally created us we were made in his image and in his likeness (Gen 1:26)
When God was creating things he spoke them into being, however when he was creating man, he took his time and creating us in a very relational way :
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dustof the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
This is why God hates religiousness, dead ritualism, which is all fake worship. God wants people that will have a true intimate relationship with him.
Joh 4:21 Jesus said to her, Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you shall neither worship the Father in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem.
Joh 4:22 You worship what you do not know, we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.
Joh 4:23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to worship Him.
Joh 4:24 God is a spirit, and they who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.
We have just come through a period known as Passover, you may know it as Easter but that is incorrect (which i will not go into now), it is Passover. We celebrated the fact that Jesus our Passover Lamb came and through his death and resurrection, has placed his blood on the door posts and lentils of the hearts of those who have believed and accepted his message and the work of the cross.
Before he was crucified he eat a Passover meal with his disciple’s and said to them as often as they do this they will be remembering his death and resurrection. This is why in churches we have The Lords Supper or communion.
It ‘s amazing how when Jesus broke the bread and said this is my body broken for you, he was positioning himself as the ultimate Passover lamb, sinless the only human being to have ever lived, without corruption. The bread in the Passover Meal was made without yeast and the Hebrew word for yeast is Chamets and figuratively is speaks of corruption. So as we take his body we are receiving the incorruptible life who has victory over Sin and Death! The fruit of the vine, speaks of his cleansing blood that paid the price we could not afford to pay and has made us in right standing before God.
This is why the work of the cross 2000 years ago was a one time event and when we look to Jesus, we should not see him as that man on the cross and be all sad, we should see him as our risen King and be confident in our expected end. Our lives should reflect this hope because every time you loose faith in him as your hope, effectively you are trying to put him back on the cross.
Our lives are that important to God that he would go through the humiliation of the cross, so that we could be saved.
So when we look at others, we should recognise how important their lives are and have respect for one another.
This is why as a Christian Love is so important and because we show love, we are showing God.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life
