I am working on a post about the wonderful two-sided nature of partnership, building a partnership team, and how God is refining us in this process, but I was struck by the profoundness of this verse tonight and I wanted to share it with you.
“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,” Philippians 3:8.
This is a familiar verse that I know well. It makes a powerful statement of significant truth, and yet, I do not always live like this. If I did live like this, what would I put aside daily, or even hourly to pursue the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus? How can I model this to my children? I don’t have profound words or insights for you today, but I do have an insatiable desire to live this out. What does this look like for you?
