You are more Precious than stuff!

"13 [Now] before the Passover Feast began, Jesus knew (was fully aware) that the time had come for Him to leave this world and return to the Father. And as He had loved those who were His own in the world, He loved them to the last and [a]to the highest degree.
So [it was] during supper, Satan having already put the thought of betraying Jesus in the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son,[That] Jesus, knowing (fully aware) that the Father had put everything into His hands, and that He had come from God and was [now] returning to God..."John 13:1-3[AMP]

The one repetitive phrase that caught my attention here is this "Jesus was fully aware". He was aware of each and every thing He would have to endure to retrieve His own, the people fearfully and wonderfully made in His own image.

God knew since the beginning of time, we (humans) could never save ourselves in our own strength and He devised a grand plan, with Himself right in the center of it, taking in all the punishment and bringing us all His goodness. 

Remember this always. God foreknew, what was in it for Him! Now we must realize whats in this for us, the price He paid is something we can never ever pay Him back! 

 Imagine the God of all Universe, could have used any payment for our sins, for the earth and everything in it belongs to Him after all, but He chose Himself to be the payment for us. I have always marveled at this thought that God could have dissolved everything and started from scratch. Now how hard could that be for God? 

Yet, He chose to save! How great His love for us. Oh yes, if you never have contemplated this, you must!

You are a very very costly treasure God chose to save! You are very precious in His sight!

So if we're wondering if God will provide the other stuff in our life, we are making His sacrifice seem small!

Romans 8:32[AMP]
He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things?
