We don’t place any confidence in physical things…

“We don’t place any confidence in physical things…  These things that I once considered valuable, I now consider worthless for Christ. It’s far more than that! I consider everything else worthless because I’m much better off knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. It’s because of Him that I think of everything as worthless. I threw it all away in order to gain Christ and to have a relationship with Him.”    (Philippians 3:3 , 3:7-9 – GW) 

So, how is your relationship with Jesus? Maybe I should ask ‘Do you have a relationship with Jesus?’ As a Christen, we should ALL have a vibrant, continuous, honest, and a heart that is reflecting, Jesus. The Apostle Paul had such a wonderful relationship with Jesus Christ, that he gave up his confidence in physical things. He traded in his life, as a well decorated, high ranking Pharisee, for a relationship with Jesus…. Who had already gone to heaven. 

I could go on and on, but I won’t. Please hear me when I say, “A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS, HIS FATHER, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT is worth more than anything you have or will have in your lifetime!” In a few months it will be 40 YEARS AGO when I accepted Jesus as my Savior. (Thanks to Tony & Katia Banfield) And I feel like it just happened yesterday. I guess I am like, Paul, “I consider everything else worthless because I’m much better off knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.”

In Him, 

Pastor Kevin Kinchen
