In 2000 a man paid $45 for some photographic plates of pictures taken in Yosemite National Park. Ten years later it was discovered that these photos were taken by the famous photographer, Ansel Adams, and they were valued to be worth $200 million!
Matthew 26:47-56 tells us that Judas led some of the Jews to arrest Jesus. Our Bible verses tell us that Judas was paid 30 silver coins for doing this. That was one-fifth of the price paid for a horse at that time. To the Jews, Jesus was worth less than a horse!
Jesus, the only Son of Almighty God, is the One who has redeemed us and promises us eternal life. The Jews did not realize Jesus’ value. They did not recognize Him as the Messiah who had come to save them from their sins. But Jesus is worth far more than 30 pieces of silver or $200 million. He should mean everything to us.
How valuable is Jesus to you? Make Him the most important part of your life.
