The infinite value

Today’s Encouragement is Philippians 3:8 NLT “Yes, 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.”

The infinite value –

This infinite value is knowing Christ. Everything else, Paul says, is worthless.

What do we hold as valuable my friends? Family, wealth, friendships, our health, property, our own treasures – all the special things we accumulate in life… how valuable are these? You may think, “Wait, you can’t include things like family and health in this list!”

Paul means everything, calls it worthless, compared to knowing Christ. Remember Paul never met Jesus during his days in the earth, he wasn’t one of the twelve disciples. So, when he speaks of knowing Jesus, it is the same type of relationship which you and I can have with Him. It isn’t knowing about Jesus…Rather it is knowing Him as you know your best friend, even more… as well as you know yourself!

Knowing Jesus, my friend… nothing else matters. No valuable possessions or even our most treasured relationships… can compare to the relationship we can have with Him… knowing Him! And this is an infinite journey, process, experience, because… He is Infinite!

Father God help us to know Christ, to enter and remain in a growing personal, honest, and even intimate relationship with Jesus.

Knowing You
