You are Important To God


<< Previous Index Next >>

You are Important To God

Jer 1:5-11

What kind of relationship do you have with God?  “Oh, God doesn’t know me.”

 

1.         Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and

      before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee,

            He has known you since before you were conceived and while in the womb.

 

2.     Psalms 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made:

            He has carefully made you.

 

3.         Jeremiah 12:3 But thou, O LORD, knowest me: thou hast seen

      me, and tried mine heart toward thee:

            He has tried and tested you.

 

4.         I Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty

      hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

      I Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

            He wants to care for you.

 

You are important to God.  You have a unique personality.  Unique abilities.  Unique talents.

      1. Society may pay little attention to you.

      2. You may not be too important in your family circle.

            No one looks to you for the final decision in matters of the home.

      3. You may not be important among your friends.

            You are just one of the crowd.

      4. You may not be very important in the place where you work.

            If you withdrew from you present job tomorrow, little would be said.

            You might not be missed by many.

      5. You may not be known by the great tide of humanity.

            You may be just a number on a computer to this world.

      6. But my friend, you are important to God.

           

You are important because of the great price that was paid for you.

                  The sinless for the sinful

            And the attention your prayers are given in heaven.

                  Ask and ye shall receive

            And the watchful eye of the Saviour.

                  He careth for you

            And the purposes that God has planned for you in His kingdom.

                  Coheirs with Christ

Now, the Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah

      This is what the LORD said to this man of God.

Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou

camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, [and] I ordained thee a prophet

unto the nations.

Jeremiah said to God: 

            Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I [am] a child.

 

Then the LORD God said back to Jeremiah:

v7   Say not, I [am] a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall

send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.

V8   Be not afraid of their faces: for I [am] with thee to deliver thee,

saith the LORD.

V9   Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth.

And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

V10   See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms,

to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build,

and to plant.

It does not take a scholar to see that the humble Jeremiah had been selected by God

      for a very important mission.

 

Now, in the same way God has a purpose for your life.

      He saved you for His purpose.

      The Holy Spirit indwells you for a purpose.

      The Bible has been given to you for a purpose.

      You are here in this world for a purpose.

Now three thoughts that will drive home this truth to you:

 

I.  Remember your place in the family of God.

      1.  You have responsibilities.

            You have been saved to serve.

            Every child of God has definite responsibilities unto the Lord.

 

            One day you will stand at the judgment seat of Christ

            You must give an account of your service

            You must tell Him how you have reacted to your responsibilities.

      2.  You must honor His name.

By receiving Christ as Saviour you became a Christian.

You wear the NAME of Christ.

You must not be forgetful of your position.

Careless living does not honor His name.

      3.  You must obey His commands.

We are free moral agents

We must obey His commands or face the consequences of disobedience.

We are members of the family of God.

God expects us to obey Him.

He is calling for obedience, not arguments.

He wants us to be like the Lord Jesus Christ.

We are to be Christ like.

Now let this first thought stay in your memory.

      Remember your place in the family of God.

      This is a serious matter and it must be taken seriously by the child of God..

 

II.  Let gratitude constantly dwell within your heart.

      Consider how great is the honor to be called children of God.

            Nothing can compare with this.

      Paul said, “thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.” 2Cor9:15

 

So:    1.  In gratitude live for Him.

Others may make fun of you, but live for Christ.

Others may ridicule your standards, but live for Christ.

Live for Him, in spite of the customs of the World Today.

Our Saviour said, “let your light so shine before men that they

may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

 

      2.  In gratitude have fellowship with Him daily.

This will mean Bible study and prayer.

Read God’s Word so that you might have fellowship with Him.

Then also we must fervently pray unto our LORD.

Bring before Him your every need.

Tell Him of your love for Him, and your devotion.

blackedicate your life to Him daily.

 

Ill. My father was a great man.  He was my hero.  He taught me to work.

He was successful. 

                  He built a wonderful estate for his family. 

                  He did much with his hands.  He could do anything. 

                  He built homes, boats, machinery, whatever he needed. 

                  I could never hope to attain such accomplishments. 

            However, none of his effort went into seeking the Lord.

                  It is greater to come before the LORD with our needs and

                  pray before Him, than anything else we might do in this world.

 

      3.  In gratitude speak of Him often

            It should not be hard to speak of the One who has done so much for us.

            “Ye shall be witnesses unto me....”

 

            A.  We must speak of His salvation.

                  The message must never grow old to us.

                  We must constantly remind ourselves of all He has done for us.

 

            B.  We must speak of His care of us.

                  “Casting all your cares upon Him for He careth for you.

 

III.  Be concerned for others.  Let it be your watchword.

      God is concerned for us.

      We must be concerned for others.

 

      1.  Your life must show concern.

      2. Your speech must reveal your concern.

 

Ill.  There is a book named “how to succeed”

The author says in the book “I’m not going to beat around the bush.

I’m going to tell it like it is.  Pinpoint those people who can help you

become successful.  Forget about all others.  There is no use wasting

time with a fellow that can’t help you.”

 

The philosophy of this book is the exact opposite of the Word of God.

Our concern must be for others.

For the rich, the poor, the helpless, the frail, the timid, the young, the old.

We must live our lives for others.

 

Conclusion:

Too long we have been counting our Salvation as an ordinary thing

It is not.   We are bought with a price.

Too long we have tried to order and control our lives.

We have forgotten, we are not our own.

We must let the holy Spirit lead and control us.

Too long we have forgotten a lost world.

We have forgotten a world, close to us physically.

We have forgotten a world, far away spiritually.

      You are important to God.

            The LORD has chosen you

      Just as He chose Jeremiah,

So He is saying to each one of us, “I ordained thee, I shall send thee,

I [am] with thee to deliver thee, I have put my words in thy mouth.”

 

You are important to God.

You are a chosen one, you have a calling.

Listen to the words of hymn # 51.

 

Some have forgotten their position with God.

      You have strayed away from His side.

      You have neglected the work he has for you.

      You have not been grateful for his blessings.

 

Therefore, I call on you now to rectify the wrong.

      Correct the wrong ideas of life.

      Begin now to see what you are and who you are, through faith in Christ.
