7. Do I treasure Christ above all?
When I think of treasuring Christ above all – I think of what the Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the church at
"For to me, to live is Christ" (Philippians 1:21).
"But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 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" (Philippisans 3:7-8).
Is that true of you? Is it true of me?
– one of the great Christian
theologians of the 4th-5th century of the church had this
to say … St. Augustine
CHRIST IS NOT VALUED AT ALL UNLESS
HE BE VALUED ABOVE ALL!
Is Jesus Christ valued ABOVE ALL else in your life? Above your money, your home, your career, your hobbies, your happiness, your comfort, and yes – even your family???
Ouch! Time to move on ... it's getting quite convicting!
