Jesus is Grace

Grace is Found in Jesus alone. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—  not by works, so that no one can boast. - Ephesians 2:8-9
1)    This Grace is a gift from God.
2)    Not of works, it cannot be earned or achieved.

Worth cannot be gained by the world we live in, but by the image we are created in.  This is where our worth comes from.

His Image is seen in us! Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” - Genesis 1:26

God cannot deny himself. It’s not anything you have done, it’s not who you are. It’s not because you have great hair, a great last name, or money in the bank. It has nothing to do with your abilities, talents or gifts. He is not moved by any of it.  What He is moved by is His image. He will not let His image be lost. 

Look in a mirror - what do you see? What does God see?
