Was It So Important?

Philippians 3:7-8 (NLT)
I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done.  Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ and become one with him.

Loving God and serving Him is not about doing more.  It’s about doing the right things.

We will all stand before God and review our lives.  Take a moment to review just the past few days.  Would God say ‘Well done’, you have blessed others with your time, talent or treasure?  Did God interrupt your planned schedule with an opportunity on His agenda?  Were you too busy?  What seemed so important that, in light of Christ’s love, was really rather meaningless?

Faith is not about doing more.  It’s about tuning in to what God wants us to do.  It’s about sacrificing some of what we find important to make room for what He finds important.
