PERSONAL WORTH IS SOMETHING THAT EVERYBODY IS INTERESTED IN TO A LARGE DEGREE. In fact, Some People Are Worth Much More Than Others In Their Estimation. However, the Bible teaches us that everyone is worth the same because the Son of God, as Jesus of Nazareth, gave His life for everybody not just some people.

When a person sets out with a goal in mind, one may ask, What is it worth? Regardless of what the person says that the goal is worth, we know how much the person values the goal by his actions. If the person makes a claim, and then later on changes his mind, we know that the person has placed a low value on that goal. If the person is prepared to do all that it takes to obtain the stated goal, then we know that the person means that he is prepared to give his life to do so.

However, when it comes to people in general, only when people have given their lives to achieve their goals, can we truly say that they were committed to achieving their intentions. Otherwise, we know they are really nothing more than bags of wind—just like all the celebrities who make out they are really sensational people, but we all know how sad and depraved they are really when it comes to truly doing what they say they are going to do. Politicians are renown for being the same.

When it comes to understanding the righteousness of the Creator, we can easily find ourselves bereft of the ability of comprehending what this means. The unrighteous wimps of this world cannot conceive of the righteousness of God because, like most people, they see only what they want to believe; rather than seeking to understand the truth and see justice done. Only those who recognize the futility of being born to die grasp the injustice of being born to suffer and not having any say in the matter. The unrighteous person, who is engrossed in self-centeredness, has no hope of understanding the righteousness of God—they are too inward-looking (Proverbs 23:7)—only those who recognize that their need for a deliverer to overcome death and its cause: the violation of righteousness.

People who do not believe in righteousness but revel in situational ethics and relative morality, cannot understand what it means to violate the eternal laws of doing what is right, because they believe they can create their own standards of acceptable behavior. Yet they overlook—in their claim to being wise—that death reigns and the cause of death needs to be addressed, if it is to be overcome. Foolishly, too many, claim that chance causes reliability, trustworthiness and character; not an intelligent mind organizing a system that incorporates a degree of variability within a teleological order. Contrary to the evidence of His existence, the Creator is rejected by those who care not for true justice.

True justice would require the Creator of the Universe to reveal to mankind His purpose for having created the Earth and placed people on it, so they can procreate, suffer, and cease to exist as biological creatures.

According to the Bible, the pre-existent Son of God came to Earth and lived in human form, so that He might taste death on behalf of mankind (Philippians 2:6-8). Not only this, when taking on human form as Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God paid the price to redeem mankind from being held captive to sin and death (Hebrews 9:11–15; Ephesians 1:7; Romans 3:24; Luke 2:38; Romans 8:23).
  • For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
When a person understands the righteousness of God, then that person is able to understand the truth that there is a better hope than being born to die and, at best, try to avoid suffering during one’s temporal existence as a mortal entity. For the person who understands the righteousness of God, there is the hope of overcoming death and its cause: the force that influences and controls every human being, the prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2).

Impotent human beings, who have nothing to offer but false promises and no hope, expect you to put your faith in them and rely upon chance, rather than discover the truth for yourself that the Creator, not only cares for you as an individual, but also lived as a human being, and died for you; so that you might be redeemed from the futility of being born to die. But because the Creator loves you, He will not override your freewill, instead the Heavenly Father invites you to come and reason with Him.
  • Come now, let us reason together,” says the Lord: “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” (Isaiah 1:18)
You are worth more to the Lord God than what value you can place on yourself. However, for your worth to be realized, and so that the highest value can be obtained, you have been given the right to appreciate your individuality by accepting the truth about reality, and doing what only a rational person possessing freewill has the ability to do.
