Does your life have the stamp of self-worth or “God worth” on it?
For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth. (2 Corinthians 10:18 KJV)
Many people desire to purport their own worthiness. We live in a day of focusing intently upon “self-worth” rather than “God worth.” Many desire to “toot their own horn” spouting off about their own value in relation to the dark standards and principles of the god of this world.
The real truth is man in his natural position is highly unworthy. Mankind can only find true worthiness by being quickened spiritually alive unto new life and positional standing in the perfection of God. This new life requires putting off their wicked self, which is spiritually dead hemmed in darkness and sin, choosing rather to live separated unto God agreeing with His holy view of the nature of sin.
Those who God commends and approves are sanctioned or made righteous by faith placed in the finished spiritual transaction of Jesus Christ upon the cross and stamped “God approved.” Regenerated man is accepted upon this earth and in the heavenly realm for all eternity.
