Matthew 27:66, NKJV “So they went and made the tomb secure, sealing the stone and setting the guard.”
The chief priests and Pharisees were trying to find their security in people, places, and things. The real reason they wanted to crucify Jesus was because of His popularity, which made them insecure and jealous. When you are trying to find your security in anything but Christ, you will always be insecure.
Insecure people: Worry and get upset about what others say about them.
Biblical security: Knowing who you are and whose you are.
2 Peter 1:3-4, NIV “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”
Find your security in who you are in Christ. Find your security in God’s great and precious promises. True security and worth do not come from what you have, how you dress, where you live, what your I.Q. is, but in who you are in Christ. You no longer have to get your worth and security from others! You are accepted, forgiven, significant, fearfully and wonderfully made. Multiply your security in Christ.
Today’s Challenge: Are you getting your worth and security from Christ? Or circumstances and people? When your circumstances change, your security and worth will change.
