Try to see people as God sees them

“You are a letter from Christ.”   2 Co 3:3 NIV

When you consider some of the people Jesus called to be His disciples, the word “dysfunctional” comes to mind. But Jesus wasn’t put off. Like finding treasure in the trash, He was able to see their potential, draw it out and develop it. And that’s your story too, isn’t it? Paul writes, “You are a letter from Christ…written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God.” Other people don’t write your story. Even you don’t. “The Spirit of the living God” is writing it. That means your best days are still ahead! An old Bible lay on a bargain table along with hundreds of tattered books. A lot of people had picked it up and thumbed through its pages. It wasn’t in very good shape—certainly not worth two pounds—so it was cast aside. Then a man picked it up, stifled a shout, and rushing to the counter he paid the paltry asking price. Turns out it was an original Gutenberg estimated to be worth more than one million pounds! How many times did that old book change hands before it was redeemed? How many times did the world cast it aside, unaware of its value? The truth is, we were all passed over until Jesus saw value in us. But rather than paying bargain price, He paid the highest price possible. “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Ro 5:8 NIV). So when you’re having a bad day, look in the mirror and remind yourself, “God loves me Calvary-worth!” Then go out and try to see others as treasures God couldn’t live without; sinners Christ died to redeem.
