“I mean, finally I have everything I dreamed to own…”
“Dude! Are you serious? There is more to life than the physical!”
Anyone who chooses the things of the world, over a life with Christ, will end up being denied by Christ because they first denied Him. We should never let fear, greed, or pride try and convince us there is a better way than following Christ – such thoughts will lead to death and destruction. The sacrifices we make now, as we choose to be disciples of Christ, will seem like nothing when we see the beauty and the glory that lies ahead.
And we pray:
Dear God, I pray that I never be deceived into considering that anything to be worth more than a life with you. Such thinking is foolish and bound to bring sorrow and great pain. Lord, I know the heavenly gain that is in following Christ. I know the honor that is in being your child. I don’t see anything else that could be worth more. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
