Summary: What is your true worth ?

(1) Introduction:

This story shows that Peter and John’s worth was not

as the world measures it. They had given up such wordly wealth (see Matthew 4-18-22) but they were now worth much more! John was named the ’beloved’ of Jesus (John 21:20) and Peter was later called a ’pillar’ in

the church (Galatians 2:9) - of worth much in the Kingdom of God.

Peter expressed this true worth in his Epistle - 1 Peter 1:7

(2) We are worth as much as we...

(a) Glorify God (verse 1 - ’ went up the hour of prayer’)

Must first realize we are unworthy and only God is worthy (1 Corinthians 15:9-10, Luke 15:19)

(b) Go For God (verse 4 - they went over to the lost soul)

Our true worth is found in doing God’s will, going where He sends us (2 Thessalonians 1:11, Ephesians 4:1)

(c) Give For God (verse 6 - ’what I have I give...’)

What did Peter have to give ? He had the name (character and authority) of Jesus! We are worth only

as much as we have to give of Jesus in our life.

(3) Conclusion: We are worth nothing on our own - our true worth is in letting God be worthy through us!
