Joseph Chase writes passionately, “I’d Rather Have Jesus.” Here’s a taste of his post:
Paul relates that knowing Jesus and the power of His resurrection is worth everything he had or would accomplish in this world (Philippians 3:8-10). Jesus offers better than we can have on our own. Wealth wanes, fame fades and things turns to dust and rust. Christ tells us not to horde the treasure of this world (Matthew 6:19). Paul reminds us riches are uncertain (1 Timothy 6:17).
He also has a song in his head on this thought, and touches on Hebrews.
