Lecrae Devaughn Moore (1979 - ), simply known as Lecrae, is an American Christian rapper, songwriter, record producer and actor. He is the president, co-owner and co-founder of the independent record label Reach Records, and the co-founder and president of the non-profit organization ReachLife Ministries.
At a conference appearance (PASSION 2015), Lecrae told the story of a recent trip to Hollywood during which he stopped into a department store to buy a T-shirt. Not a fancy silk or diamond studded shirt—just a plain cotton T-shirt. As he pulled one from the rack, he noticed the price tag and thought to himself that it must be mis-marked. So he pulled another only to find the same price on the tag. Incredulous, he approached the salesperson to question the exorbitant price—$640!
The salesperson told him the price was correct—$640 was the “special” sale price!
He began to question what could possibly be so special about this T-shirt to warrant such a value. “Am I going to be healed of some disease when I put this on? Am I going to get some kind of super-power?”
“It’s the designer’s name on it that adds value to it,” she replied.

“Do you know how valuable you are because of Whose name is on you?” Lecrae asked the crowd.
“Do you understand that your worth and value comes from Whose name is on you? God’s glory is stitched in your genes, and you are here to glorify Him!”
Indeed, we are made in the very image of the Living God. He has designed us. He has created us to do His will and His work.
“So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27, NLT). “For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10). "In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:16).
