Philippians 3:4-7

Philippians 3_4-7.jpg

If someone else thinks they have reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee; as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for righteousness based on the law, faultless. But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. - Philippians 3:4-7

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for freeing me from the squirrel cage wheel of sifting through all my talents and accomplishments to look for my personal worth.  All the things I used to treasure are worthless compared to the gift you have granted to me because you love me.  I am loved and I am saved.  I am eternal and I will live forever way above my puny earthly life.   Nothing compares to this and the hope it gives.  Thank you, thank you, thank you for lifting me up and putting me on higher ground. 

Amen

When we know our worth in Christ, we love our worthlessness in this world.
