Jon Thurlow sings (http://www.ihopkc.org/prayerroom/#asset/140128_TPR_0800/auto/true) (18 minute mark onwards):
“And in a world that’s tired and sinned and grown old. Oh Jesus, we say you have a beautiful heart.”
The world tells us:
-Your value is dependent on how others judge the following:
: Your performance (social performance/status/work performance)
: Your impact and influence on others
: Your appearance (clothes, hair, body shape, makeup)
: Your money – (how much you have, how much you can earn)
: Your possessions – (car, house, clothes, job, gadgets, fashion, technology, phone)
Jesus tells us:
: Man looks at the outward appearance but I look at the heart.
: Your value is in who I say you are.
: I say that you are worth my very life.
: Your value is in the fact that I love you and you love Me
Is there anyone in this world, even in your own family, who would die for you?
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
