Someone Worth Dying For

I've been attending a course called Christianity Explored over the last few weeks, and we're learning about Christianity through the Gospel of Mark.  Last week we began discussing Jesus' death and why He died. During that discussion, I was reminded of the sacrifice that He made for us....but then I was drawn to make this sacrifice more personal....He died to save ME.  To make me able to be with God forever, in this life and beyond.

So this week I thought I'd share a song called "Someone Worth Dying For," by Mikeschair
Jesus' time on earth and his death for us is confirmation that God loves us.  He shows us, like the photographer in this video, that we are special, we are important, we are beautiful. 

You're worth it, you can't earn it
Yeah the Cross has proven
That you're sacred and blameless
Your life has purpose

You are more than flesh and bone
Can't you see you're something beautiful
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe
He wants you to see, He wants you to see
That you're not just some wandering soul
That can't be seen and can't be known
Yeah you gotta believe, you gotta believe that you
Are someone worth dying for

I hope this song is encouraging to you this week.  May you remember that Jesus' sacrifice was given for YOU, thereby proving that you are loved more than you can comprehend.

This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  1 John:9-10
