A May message from Martin:
You don’t have to travel around the world to discover that God loves variety. He made all shapes, sizes, colours, intensities. Did you know that God made over 300,000 species of beetles?
Wouldn’t you call that creative overkill? I mean, couldn’t the world have been happy with just 50,000 species? Why did God create 300,000? Did you know that in one cubic foot of snow there are 18 million snowflakes and no two of them are alike? Now, nobody else is going to appreciate this but GOD so He obviously loves variety in snowflakes and beetles and in people too. Have you ever sat in a busy airport and watched the parade of peculiar people who walk by?
People are unique physically. And, they are unique mentally and emotionally as well. Researchers have discovered that there are at least 18,000 different personality traits. The possible combinations of these various traits are limitless. All this is to say, you are unique. There is not another person in the world like you. There has never been and never will be. God did not create carbon copies. He only creates originals.
Why would God go to all that trouble? I mean it would have been a lot easier to make only one kind of man and one kind of woman. But, He didn’t do that. He made every human unique because He wants you to know how special you are…how precious you — ONE OF A KIND YOU — are to Him.
YOU AE UNIQUE - But your value is not only seen in the unique way God created you.
It is also seen in the fact that He claimed you as His own. I Corinthians 6:19 says, “You are not your own; you were bought with a price.” We are not worthless; far from it! When sin entered the world God paid the unbelievable price to get us back. If you and I can ever grasp the fact that we are worth so much to God that He was willing to pay the ultimate price, the death of His Son on the cross, in order to claim us as His own then we will never again think of ourselves as worthless or unlovable. John 3:16 basically says, “God VALUED every single human being so highly that He gave His one and only Son to die on the cross so that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
