The Soul Felt Its Worth

Did you hear it? Replay if needed…but, please, pause, and hear these lyrics:

The soul felt its worth. Your soul has its worth.
Our souls have worth. Because of Grace…and Love

Jesus came for us! Because we matter to Him!

The soul felt its worth.

We argue against such a love. In the parable of the prodigal son, the son has a speech about his unworthiness.
“Father, I have sinned. I am not worthy to be called your son.” He says it twice.
The father pays no attention to the speech at all. He doesn’t even acknowledge it. He says, “Kill the fatted calf! We must celebrate! My son who was dead is alive!”

Something profound takes place in the soul of a person when they know they matter; when they know they are prized. It changes them; there is no longer any room for fear in the relationship. They know they are loved, and it evokes love in return. Someone who is recued has a deep and profound gratitude to the rescuer. “You would do this for me?”

God cannot be stopped. They must be worth a great deal to him. Inestimable worth. And that is why the soul felt its worth. This nativity had an object in mind. That object is you and me. ~John Eldredge

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining, ‘Til He appear’d and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees! O, hear the angels’ voices! O night divine, O night when Christ was born; O night divine, O night, O night Divine.
