There can be so much seeking of empty things, such as acceptance, as if our value is based on the opinion of someone else. Though, in Christ Jesus our value has already been validated by His sacrifice. God’s image over us brings wholeness. And especially when we doubt it, it is when we need to remind ourselves of our worth evermore. The impact is the more value we experience through God, the more eager we are to do good and take the righteous path. However, the more we seek after the Lord it can produce earthly loneliness when peers or family do not understand the direction of your heart. But God promises to be all sufficient, and bless those who seek Him, Jesus calls us friend. Such a joy, a happy occasion to have a friend, confidant, provider and true love that holds every bit of us dear. We are fully accepted through Jesus, and His grace has appeared to us and teaches us (Titus 2:11).
“…teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,” (Titus 2:12-13 NKJ).
