 Treasuring Christ

A very short and simple message, that asks us a very profound question. May these words find their way to our hearts and may we really learn to treasure Christ at all costs.

“The way we display the supreme worth of Jesus in our lives is by treasuring Christ above all things, and then making life choices that show that our joy is not finally in things or even in other people, but in Christ.

Here is the essential lesson for living the unwasted life and dying the unwasted death:

[b]1.[/b] Life and death are given to us as means of displaying the supreme value of Christ

[b]2.[/b] The supreme value of Christ is displayed when you treasure Him above all earthly things and all other earthly persons

[b]3.[/b] This treasuring of Him above all earthly things and persons is most clearly seen in what you are gladly willing to risk, or to sacrifice in order to enjoy more of Him.”

“Solid, lasting missionary work is done on our knees.”
- J.O. Fräser

“The devil doesn’t mind how many sermons we preach or prepare, if it will keep us from preparing ourselves.”
- Vance Havner

“Do not forget the importance of walking according to the light you have, while seeking for more.”
- James Hudson Taylor

"...but God knows your hearts."
- Jesus Christ

In other words, "Love the Lord your God with ALL your heart, and with ALL your soul and with ALL your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment."

To fall short of this in the way we live our lives is to miss the mark.
