-But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Phil 3:7.
-Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ. Phil 3:8
-and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith-- 3:9
-that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death. 3:10
Have you ever stopped to think to yourself what is most important to you in your life?
I won't finish this blog tonight due to my self examination.
but here is something to think on.
When have you suffered a loss of giving up something to find out just how worth your relationship with Christ is?
have you ever gained something to loss it for Christ sake ?
have you ever lost something and gained something new for your relationship.
have you ever put your self righteousness aside to find righteousness from God?
What is the importance of your life?
what is it you treasure ?
everything is temporary.
but yet .....
you seek to save here on this earth
you seek to gain and loss nothing
and have yet to find Christ worthy.......
may you and I both find out how worthy Christ is like paul states here.
May we both find that love.
the one where we loss or gain everything for the worth of Christ.
temporary or eternal?
I'm torn between.
