Nothing compared to Christ // 26-07-19

“…I count everything as loss compared to the priceless privilege and supreme advantage of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord [and of growing more deeply and thoroughly acquainted with Him—a joy unequaled]. For His sake I have lost everything, and I consider it all garbage, so that I may gain Christ, and may be found in Him [believing and relying on Him]…” Philippians 3:8-9‬ ‭AMP‬‬

We waste so much time comparing our lives with others, trying to keep up and thinking that our value is found in our achievements, status, connections and/or possessions. But St Paul discovered that all of that pales into insignificance compared to knowing Jesus! That’s where my value is truly found, that’s who counts in eternity, that’s what will make the grade when this life is over! Lord, I am so privileged to know that I have been found in You. Never let me lose the wonder or the joy of that, and save me from wasting precious time chasing things that ultimately don’t really matter. Amen 🙏🏼
