Hierarchies have had a prevalent place in much of society throughout history. This also includes the Body of Christ. Was this the intention that Christ had when He established His Church? Some would have us to believe this is so.
The truth of the matter is that when God looks at us, He sees us through the Blood of Jesus. Each of us has our own gifts and abilities, but they are all given to us for the exact same purpose: to glorify God, to advance His Kingdom and to edify the Body of Christ.
This means that no one person is greater than the other in the economy of God’s Kingdom. We are all valuable. We all have tremendous worth because we are covered by the Blood of Jesus.
Do not allow others to diminish your worth in an effort to make themselves appear to have more importance than you. God loved us all the same in that He gave His One and Only Son for us all.
Embrace your worth. Embrace your uniqueness. Embrace your Creator for making you such an integral part of His overall plan for His creation.
