Human Worth
September 24, 2014

This theme of human worth carries throughout Scripture. God made people “only a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor” (Hebrews 2:7). Even God’s rules illustrate how God the Father “loves you and keeps you safe in the care of Jesus Christ” (Jude 1:1). All the specific commands in both the Old and New Testaments affirm our worth, flow from His love, and direct us toward a higher goal. Listen today as Gary Chapman explains what the Bible has to say about human's worth to God.


Host: Dr. Gary Chapman


First Love
