Dear Church Family:
Something Has to Go
It was simple for Paul. He loved being with Jesus.
“To live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21).
Knowing Christ deeply consumed him.
“What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ” (Philippians 3:8)
There is literally nothing more important you could do today than to spend meaningful time alone with God.
There is no substitute for being alone with God. If you don’t have time, you need to quit something to make room. Skip a meal. Cancel a meeting. End some regular commitment.
There is literally nothing more important you could do today.
God literally determines whether or not you take another breath.
“He himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else” (Acts 17:25).
Could anything be more important than meeting with the One who decides if you live through this day? Could anything be better? How can we not make time to be with the Maker of time?
What plans do you have today that you think so important that you would race past the Creator to get to them?
