Words of truth imbedded in a quirky British sci-fi show. If you’ve never watched BBC’s Doctor Who, then you won’t know who the Doctor is, or understand the bit about time, space, and nine hundred years. Anyway, it is a television series we are watching, and I just loved that line. It sums up what I have been thinking about this week. Every single person is important. Every single person is extraordinary. Do you know why? It is because every single person is fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of our Creator.
Sometimes everyone feels that they are simply extra ordinary and average. That feeling, however, is a lie, plain and simple. God makes His feelings on the subject clear throughout the Bible. One of my favorite Old Testament passages about this is Psalms 139, which blatantly points out the truth: we are all fearfully and wonderfully made, created for a unique purpose, and we cannot escape our Creator’s love! Isn’t it just amazing and mind-boggling?! He has made each one of us to be an astounding display of His glory and goodness. It is, I believe, His desire that we each not only realize His beauty but also realize the beauty He has put inside us. What better way to show the magnificence of the Creator than through that which He has so carefully and lovingly created, His greatest masterpieces? “Never doubt your value, my beloved,” He whispers to each of our hearts. “You are my beautiful treasure, a pearl of great price, and you were worth the greatest Sacrifice.” So here’s the question: do you believe it?
“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious are your thoughts toward me, God! How vast is the sum of them!” – Psalms 139:16-17
