Self Image

QUESTION: Is having a positive self image important?

ANSWER:

Yes, a positive self image is important as long as we’re basing that conclusion on the right things. Our image is not based on what others think of us, how others treat us, or how good or bad we think we are. Self image is based on how God sees us.

Who Are You to GOD?
  • You are valuable to God (Luke 12:24).
  • You are dearly loved (Isaiah 54:10). You are so loved by God that He sent His only Son to earth to die for you on the cross for our sin (John 3:16).
  • You were created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). That is beauty!
  • You are forgivable (Isaiah 43:25).
  • You need Christ’s strength (Philippians 4:13).
  • You have a purpose (Romans 8:29)
  • God cares about you (1 Peter 5:7)
Understanding self image is important because the way we feel about ourselves affects the way we project ourselves to others. Relationships and daily interactions are influenced by the way we view ourselves. People who have a positive self image make others feel more at ease and relaxed. They can take constructive criticism and are not easily threatened by conflict. These are assets to a successful relationship.

A positive self worth makes us more productive. People with a healthy self image set goals and work hard at achieving them. They take responsibility for their actions and see themselves as contributors in every aspect of their life. People with a positive self image are pro-active.

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
