This Week's Lesson: Every Person Matters (Psalm 139)

Did you know that you are fully known and loved by God? 
 
In Psalm 139 David wrote the words, “Lord, You know me. You know when I sit down and when I stand up. You know everything I think about. You know when I travel and when I rest; You know everything about me. Before I say a word, You know it. You are all around me. I feel You with me. Where can I go to escape from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence?” 
 
This passage describes the inescapability of God’s watchful care. He knows us through and through. Although there is great comfort in knowing this, it can produce some trepidation. Knowing that He is aware of our strengths and victories is one thing, but knowing that He is also privy of our inner most thoughts as well as our shortcomings, failures, and sins can be frightening.  
 
The good news is that God’s love and the value He places on us is not dependent upon our strengths and weakness, nor our successes and failures. We are loved simply because we are His creation and made in His own image. 
 
This however, does not negate the fact that sin is a problem. God is perfectly holy and therefore absent of sin, which means people cannot enjoy fellowship with Him unless the sin problem is resolved. The good news is God the Father sent God the Son, Jesus, to be the perfect sinless human sacrifice we needed to remedy the sin problem. 
 
Now, if we accept Jesus and choose to follow Him, we will not only get to enjoy a meaningful relationship with God, but also honestly rejoice in knowing that He sees all things, knows all things, and accepts us as His children simply because we have been redeemed by the sacrificial death of His Son, Jesus.
