I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ” Phil 3:8

Paul’s passion was for his life to be all about Jesus. His life’s goal was to get to know Jesus better – this he placed above everything else. Everything he had achieved, everything he had done he viewed as worthless – he considered them garbage compared to knowing Jesus better.

Make knowing Jesus the focus of your life. Let this be your greatest quest, to place knowing Jesus above all the ‘stuff’ that will clutter your week. Spend time looking at Him, linger in His presence.

Look at Jesus and see God’s love for you. Look at Him on the cross and see the lengths to which God has gone to make you His.

Knowing the reality of God’s love changes the perspective of everything you will face today. Whatever you are going through, whatever lies ahead - first look at Jesus. Look at Jesus and see His heart for your life. Look at Jesus and be reminded that you are precious to Him. Look and see that no matter what you do or where you are – His love will reach you there.
