As a Realtor, I’m trying to help my friend find a home, and we’ve looked at nearly everything that comes on the market in her price range, some on-site and other via photos. The photos help us eliminate the bad ones with the most undesirable qualities. Most homeowners that are eager to sell, will do whatever they need to do to get the best price, but some, no matter what their agent tells them, they don’t make changes. If a home looks unkempt, has clutter, dirty carpet, and shocking paint colors, they will not get a good offer. So here’s the good news, we are all like the unkempt house that no one wants, but Jesus wants you, dirty carpet, shocking paint, and all! What’s more is, He pays full price! He goes in and completely remodels you, making your value soar! My point is, never underestimate your worth, to Jesus, you are the most precious.
But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, Titus 3:4-6
