Joy, in the surpassing worth of Christ
The value that we place on things is determined by how much it’s worth to us. Sometimes it’s easy to see value, sometimes it’s harder. Our money for example, we can easily see how much our dollar is worth by comparing it to other currencies (or by how much it costs us to pay for gas…$1.90/L?! Sheesh!).
We do this personally in our lives as well. We attach value to different things and its worthiness to us determines how much we care about it: The value of people around us is determined by how much time we spend with them and how much we care about them, the value of our possessions by how well we take care of them. The list goes on and on. The same goes for Jesus; the extent we value Jesus is determined by our commitment to him, how highly we elevate his call on our lives, and our willingness to forsake everything in comparison to him.
In Philippians 3, Paul attacks this head on in a “shot-across-the-bow” type message that will cause us to ask, how much do I value Jesus? We’ll see the realities of what happens when Jesus is everything to me.
