NEW HOPE, A NEW WORTH


For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us, because we are of the opinion and conviction that [if] One died for all, then all died; And He died for all, so that all those who live might live no longer to and for themselves, but to and for Him Who died and was raised again for their sake. Consequently, from now on we estimate and regard no one from a [purely] human point of view [in terms of natural standards of value]. [No] even though we once did estimate Christ from a human viewpoint and as a man, yet now [we have such knowledge of Him that] we know Him no longer [in terms of the flesh]. (2 Corinthians 5:14-16 AMP)

Christ death paid the penalty of our sins and His resurrection gives us new life, new goals, new hope and new purpose higher and greater than the standard of this world, to pursue”

“It is very unwise to base your self worth on the standards of this world to climb a ladder leaning on a wrong wall and run a rat race that can’t be won by simply running faster”
