“Indeed, I count everything as loss compared because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.” Philippians 3:8 ESV
The above passage from Philippians 3 should probably be one more Christians meditate on. How many problems do we face each week because we are more concerned about gaining in worldly values rather than in our knowledge of and relationship to Jesus Christ? It is a battle we face regularly as humans, but the solution is clear and available. Knowing Jesus is a treasure with endless value, as this relationship we have allows us to not only see blessings on earth, but also grants us a home in heaven for eternity.
I would imagine for most of those who will read this blog, Graham Kendrick is an unfamiliar name. However, this beautiful song, ‘Knowing You Jesus’, is a gentle and peaceful reminder that knowledge of Jesus has value we cannot find anywhere else. What power could be found if we could bring our lives to a place of treasuring our relationship with Jesus above anything else?
As you prepare for worship tomorrow, allow that last thought to simmer in your mind for a bit. What are you missing in life because Jesus is not your most cherished possession? Enter your worship tomorrow ready to get more knowledge about this amazing Jesus! – Timothy
‘Knowing You Jesus’ can be found on the album, The Very Best of Graham Kendrick.
