I just spent an hour and half trying to explain Instagram to someone who’s never done anything with it. We looked at pages of people we admire, people who sell the products he wants to sell, influencers, relatives and friends and at the end he still said, I don’t get it. What’s the point?
What are we trying to do with Instagram? As my friend said during the conversation it’s all very self aggrandizing. I’ve looked at it as trying to “attract” followers. Being attractive enough. When you really break it down it’s like junior high all over again. Ick. Just ick.
I’d like to think I’m putting some positive content out there. Something that will give others hope in the midst of this icky world. A reminder that they don’t have to prove themselves worthy. They’ve already been made worthy. I feel like I just wrote something very similar to this but if this is all I ever write about that’s okay as long as you get the message – YOU ARE WORTHY. I came home and realized that the Chris Tomlin song, “Is He Worthy?” was playing on repeat in my head – the Holy Spirit reminding me that we are made worthy because HE is worthy.
You don’t have to prove yourself worthy to anyone because God, the creator of the universe, found you worthy enough that even if you were the only person alive on this earth He still sent His one and only Son to save YOU. He loves you that much that you were worth His Son.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 God watched His beloved Son die on the cross in a horrific death because he knew that was the only way to save us. And we were worth saving. Please, if you don’t understand this, reach out to me or someone who does understands this. A pastor, a friend, a neighbor. Someone who can walk you through how very worthy you are.
