“More than that, I now regard all things as liabilities compared to the far greater value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things – indeed, I regard them as dung! – that I may gain Christ,”
The things we valued before Christ become liabilities, often, impediments to the greater worth of having a relationship with Jesus. Though we may possess still some things, we have lost all for him. He is too precious to lose over things of this world.
What things did I value before Christ? Are there things that still hold an appeal to me? What am I doing now to gain him?
