I Am Worth Fighting For – The Epitome of Narcissistic Worship

Narcissistic worship happens when we start singing songs about our own worth instead of Christ’s?

“Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name be the glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness”  (Psalm 115:1)

But as for us, we are worthless and unworthy:

“All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” (Romans 3:12)

It is our unworthiness that makes God’s grace so amazing!  That He would set His love upon, and save, unworthy, wicked, hell-deserving sinners.  Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!

May we never fall prey to this modern day, narcissistic, man-glorifying religion that preaches the gospel of self-esteem.  Our boast is not in our worth, but in His cross!

“But as for me, I will never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. The world has been crucified to me through the cross, and I to the world”  Galatians 6:14

 

Worth Fighting For

You met me deep in my despair
To show me you would never leave me there you claimed
Be’Cause I was made for so much more
I am your child and I’m worth fighting for
Though heavy with the weight of my mistakes
You carried me and refused to let me sink under the pressure
You meant for me to soar. I am your child
And I’m worth fighting for.
Eyes haven’t seen ears haven’t heard
All you have planned for me and nothing can separate me from
Your love when there’s so much more still worth fighting for
Now I’m moving by faith and not by sight
Towards victory by the power of your might
You’re straightening out my past and opening every door
I am your child and I’m worth fighting for
Eyes haven’t seen ears haven’t heard
All you have planned for me and nothing
Can separate me from your love when
There’s so much more still worth fighting for
There’s so much more still worth fighting for

Hey, hey! if you believe that you’ re worth fighting for, shout to the Lord
There is so much more still worth fighting for

Another song from this same Christian Gospel artist called, “Keep Pressing On” (So Proud)

Some of the lyrics in this song

“So when you look in the mirror, and the pain is all you see
Just know its gonna get better, trust and believe
No matter what you do, stand firm to what is true
You were born to win, just believe in you”
