Don't worry I am not begging for money...I just want to challenge you all to really think about this...What is Jesus worth to you?
I have been really challenged by this in my own life lately...I was reading a chapter in this book called Radical (which is the book featured in the pic) it is written by David Platt and one part really impacted me... here is an excerpt of that part.
"This brings us to the crucial question for every professing or potential follower of Jesus: Do we really believe he is worth abandoning everything for? Do you and I really believe that Jesus is so good, so satisfying, and so rewarding that we will leave all we have and all we own and all we are in order to find our fullness in him? Do you and I believe him enough to obey him and to follow him wherever he leads, even when the crowds in our culture-and maybe in our churches-turn the other way?"
After reading this paragraph, I immediately felt a list forming in my head. It was a list of things that mean a lot to me like names of certain friends, family, dreams that I have for my life, and other such things. Then I hear God, "Am I worth abandoning these things?"
BAM! It was one of those things that cut right into my heart, so I wanted to share that with you all! I know that God is worth it, but it seems like I too easily forget that in the moment of things and life starts getting a bit blurry...
I stress about all the things that I have to do and forget what is really worth it in my life...GOD.
As usual thanks for reading and I'd love to hear from you!
