Acknowledge That You’re Special

There’re people who like to tell us that we’re
not very special. Even sometimes in the
church, there’re those who, when they’re called to
give a testimony, would say, “God did such-and-such
for me, not because I’m special.” But you’re special.
People make such statements out of ignorance, and
a seeming show of humility. You’re peculiar. You’re
special to God. You’re His pearl of inestimable value.
It’s not pride to acknowledge and affirm that you’re
Remember, God gave birth to you. James 1:18
says, “Of his own will begat he us with the word of
truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his
creatures.” It’s absolutely impossible for God to give
birth to “nonentities” or “unworthy servants” that some
Christians unwittingly arrogate to themselves, because
He reproduces after His own kind. You’re the crown
of God’s creation, the best of all that He made.
Our opening Scripture says the kingdom of heaven
is like a merchant seeking goodly pearls, who, when
he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold
all that he had, and bought the pearl. You’re that pearl
That You’re Special
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a
merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he
had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all
that he had, and bought it (Matthew 13:45-46).
