Dang. Aren’t you just sick of this world?! I gotta tell you, I’m just about over this place. Aren’t you? Aren’t you just so completely tired of everything and everybody being about who is the skinniest, who is the hottest, who is the richest and who is the coolest? All this world cares about is who wins and who has the most money doing it. And look, when wealth and winning are what’s important, real people get pushed aside. This world doesn’t care about your heart. This world cares about the bottom line, period. The problem here is that unless you are the very best at something this world cares about, you don’t feel like you mean anything. According to the world, you only matter if you fit right in to all that material junk. But is that the way it should be? Do people only have value if they look a certain way or kick an inflatable ball really well or drop a cool beat that gets radio play? If only those folks matter, then what about the rest of us? Here’s the deal: this world may never tell you that you have value, but what if that doesn’t really matter? What if the One who invented and crafted this whole universe says that you matter to Him? And what if He said you have value just because He loves you? Well, if that’s true, it changes everything. Jesus made everything that is. He made you and He says you’re valuable and lovable and that you mean everything to Him. Listen to this game-changer Jesus said once: “I am not of this world.” Now, that’s the kind of thing that could set someone free.
