“More than that, I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Because of Him I have suffered the loss of all things and consider them filth, so that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own from the law, but one that is through faith in Christ — the righteousness from God based on faith.”
Philippians 3:8-9 HCSB
When all is stripped away from our lives, we still have Jesus. Our world is becoming more insane but we have Jesus. Our firm foundation. Our refuge and strength. Paul talked about the value of knowing Jesus. What a precious relationship! The God who created everything loves us! The God who stepped into time to take our punishment for us wants a relationship with us! Today let’s pray for a deeper realization of God’s extreme love for us. His love for me! His love for you! Oh how He loves us!
“Then everyone will fear and will tell about God’s work, for they will understand what He has done. The righteous one rejoices in the Lord and takes refuge in Him; all those who are upright in heart will offer praise.”
Psalms 64:9-10 HCSB
Today let’s take some time to kneel in reverence before our God. He alone is worthy of our praise and adoration. We praise our holy God, the King above all kings!
