Big Failure…Big Rejection | Facing Your Blitz Weekly Video Devotion
Think about a when you failed big-time…or were rejected deeply. The feelings were intense. The pain was high. If you’ve been there, you’ll identify with this story about getting flattered, then benched, then rejected. Watch and remember that there is more to the equation of life than performance.
“When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners” (Romans 5:6-8, NLT)
Worldly judgment – praise and rejection – are based on the external. What’s on the surface? What’s the performance? How much have you allowed conditional and performance-based assessments to impact your identity and sense of dignity? How much have you judged and treated others through the conditional, performance-based equation? Contrast the performance of us humans…with the unconditional, relationship-based love of God as demonstrated in Christ.
Set yourself free from the small, damaged, view of yourself that you’ve picked up from society’s measuring system. God made you. He made you for a purpose. God values you. He showed it through Christ.
Make a shift in how you see, speak about, speak to and treat other people. Be the antidote to a conditional, performance-based value system. See value. Speak value. Show Love.
