“But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.”
In this life we are given many things and people.
Many times, we fail to remember where, or rather Who, these gifts come from.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
God in His infinite wisdom gives us everything and everyone we have.
The very breath of life inside of us came from Him.
The lungs we breathe with, He created.
He freely gives us everything.
With His gifts, comes purpose.
Purpose for us, and a purpose for which He wants us to use the gifts He has given.
Many times, He gives so that we may be willing to lose for Him.
“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.”
Paul was willing to lose everything he had for the sake of knowing Christ.
He was willing to have nothing if it meant he could know Jesus Christ more.
Could we say that today?
God simply wants us to be willing to lose even the dearest thing to us in order know Him more.
The truth of the matter is, when we think we have lost something or someone for the sake of Christ, we end up receiving so much more that we had before.
