The Priceless Life

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

How the precious children of Zion, once worth their weight in gold, are now considered as pots of clay, the work of a potter’s hands! Lamentations 4:2

Some people teach that God gave His life on Golgotha because our lives were so precious. But the truth is – He gave His life for us – not because we were worth it – but to make us worth it. In ancient times they would use a balance or scale to determine worth and value. On one side of the scale they would place a weight. On the other, they would place the object being purchased – for example, grain. They would then keep adding grain until the weight of the grain matched that of the weight on the other side.

God gave His life as the weight on the other side of the scale – so the weight of His life would be added to yours. It means that now there’s a new weight given to your life, a new worth, a new value, a new preciousness. And it has nothing to do with what you’ve done – it’s about His life and worth. Live your life now, in the worth, the righteousness, the glory, and the weight of His life. For Messiah is now the value and the weight of your life.

Today’s Mission

Live this day as one whose life has been made costly, precious, and priceless by the life and blood of Messiah.

The German Dichotomy

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Before WWII, much of German culture, politics, and religious life held an underlying belief that there were two spheres of life – the religious and the secular. And that each sphere did not affect the other one. Holiness was something that related entirely to the spiritual realm – and not the realm of this world. Faith had to do with religion and not the rest of life – certainly not the political realm. The result of all this was when Hitler rose to power, much of the church just gave in or didn’t see that it was its job to oppose him.

We often do the same thing with our lives – we keep the two realms separate – there’s the realm of our faith – and then there’s the realm of real life. But the Bible never speaks of a religious realm and a secular realm. For if the Lord is not Lord of all – then He’s not Lord at all. So don’t let there be any such wall of separation. There is no religious or secular realm of your life. For the Lord your God is Lord of all.

Today’s Mission – What is it in your life that has not been touched and transformed by the power of God? Start breaking down that wall today and let the power of God have its way.
