“But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.”
Change your perspective on what is worth living for!
There are things that used to be “gain to me”, things that used to matter to me a lot before I realised the “value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord”. But now that I know him, I realise that compared to a life lived close to him, everything else is like “rubbish”.
Jesus wants to reveal himself to you in that awesome way, like he did to the Apostle Paul. Knowing Christ surpasses anything else you could do today. And you will know him intimately when you walk with him all day, each day.
