1 John 4:17
This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5:21
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Today I was trying to think of all the things I've accomplished and plan to accomplish that give me value. Book writer, spartan racer, college athlete, masters degree, but for some reason I was still feeling like a failure. 
Then I thought about Jesus. My favorite accomplishment is being a daughter of the King. I didn't have to do anything to earn it. I didn't have to work for it, train for it, or beg for it. I just am! The thing is, my identity in Christ is the only thing that truly adds value to my life. Everything else is fleeting.
It is Jesus's accomplishments that add value to our lives.  It is what HE DID!  Look at the cross- look at all He did!  That victory- the victory over sickness, death, and sin- that is OUR VICTORY!  All He is, we are! 1 John 4:17 says, "This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus"
Next time you feel like a failure, look at the cross!  Look at the empty grave!  You are a winner, you are victorious!  Your value comes from Jesus.
Today, know you are a child of the King- and that is the only Identity you need to make you invaluable! YOU'RE worth dying for!

Blessings,
Ally
