Verse of the day
“But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ.” – Philippians 3:7-8
Word for today
Today, God wants you to know that whatever you let go of to obey and follow the Lord is not a loss but a gain. As written in the scriptures, those who lose their earthly possessions gain Christ, and gaining Christ is greater than any riches this world can offer.
You may let go of a job opportunity to follow the calling of Jesus. You may lose your wealth to obey Jesus. You may even lose yourself to live a Christ-like life. These cannot be counted as your loss. Instead, these are counted as your gain, for Your Father in Heaven sees all your selflessness for the Kingdom of God, and He will surely reward you accordingly.
