|How valuable is the knowledge of Christ?|
May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us!
‘What is more, I consider everything a loss, compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ.’ Philippians 3:8 NIV
It is Thanksgiving week in the US. Most people will be focused on the turkey and getting together with family and friends. And that is wonderful. Many will pause to give thanks for all the blessings they have received. Paul is telling us that all the things we value is ‘rubbish’ when compared to knowing Jesus Christ. This knowledge is not just knowing about Jesus but really knowing Him and having a personal relationship with Him. Non-believers know about Jesus. Believers know Him personally and have a one on one relationship with Him; that’s the most valuable treasure we can have. Thank You Jesus that You make yourself known to us and You want to have a personal relationship with us. May we draw closer to You.
Have a Blessed Day! Follow Him! One Less Day to Go!
