What are you worth?

It is easy to think you deserve something. It can seem that you should have everything you need or want, but unfortunately these very things come between us and the Loving JESUS.

The Apostle Paul says, “everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.” Philippians 3:8+9

We give up so little and are so easily distracted from following and serving him.

Paul said, ‘I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead.He loved JESUS and wanted to know Him so closely, that he would give up everything for him.”

We give up such blessings and power for he trivial things of this world. We give up knowing the eternal GOD as our Father, just to feel happy and comfortable.

JESUS gave up everything, so that we could have everything truly valuable, with him forever .

JESUS says, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?l Is anything worth more than your soul?” Matthew 16:25

It is a stark choice – choose wisely….
