God Values You Just As Much As He Values Jesus? - What I Learned From Rhapsody Of Realities For Today - 16th January 2017 - A Review By A.B.King

Romans 5:7-8 KJV
For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. [8] But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    In Today's Rhapsody, Pastor Chris talked about our value to God.

    I must confess that today's devotional is too difficult for me to swallow.
    Maybe one day my spirit would be strong enough to digest the revelation that Pastor Chris is trying to pass across in today's devotional.

     I know I am valuable to God. I know that God loves me.
     Whoa! I was just about to write "I know that God sent his only son to the Cross to die for me."
     Then I realized that I had just given myself proof that God loves me as much as he loves Jesus.

     You cannot sacrifice something to gain something that has less value to you than the sacrifice.

     You cannot pay $1,000,000 for a bottle of water, because no bottle of water means more to you than $1,000,000.
    However, you can pay $1,000,000 for a Painting if the value of that Painting to you is the same as $1,000,000 or worth more than that to you.

    So God sending Jesus as a sacrifice for us means that to God we are either as valuable to Jesus or more valuable than Jesus.

    It's dangerous to think we are more valuable than Jesus to God. Thinking that kind of thing is the kind of blasphemy that could vaporize you into the ether.
    Therefore we have to choose the only other possibility: God Values Us As Much As He Values Jesus.
    Don't ask why? Don't say but we are not worthy of such a price. We are not worthy to be valued at equal value with Jesus.

    Quiet. It is not your decision to make. It is not up to you. God has the right value what he wants how he wants.
     This is not about how you value yourself. It is about how God values you.

    Did you know that I didn't know any of this when I started out writing this article. This explanation is not in today's devotional. If it was I wouldn't have had any problem swallowing the revelation that Pastor Chris was trying to pass across.

    This is one of the good things about writing devotional reviews like this. The Spirit of God teaches me as I'm writing and gives me revelations; broadening my mind on the topic and enabling me put down things I didn't know before but would be a blessing to those those read it and even to me.

     There are many times like this when I preached to somebody that the Holy Spirit put words in my mouth to say. I said things I didn't previously know. I said things in ways I wouldn't have normally done or thought wise, yet that was what worked.
     It's amazing that the same thing is happening to my writing.

    There are blessings in God that are only reserved for Soul Winners.

My Prayer For You:

   I pray that believe & bask in the joy of God's love. In Jesus Name. Amen.

Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/

The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
