What is it Worth to you?
Philippians 1:27 Ony let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ.......
For something to have worth, it means that it has a price, cost, or a value.
We value things that are important to us. We value our family, we value our time, and we value our health. We spend much of our time and money on the things we value. People outside of our lives can look at our lives and see what we value the most by what we spend our time and money on.
Is Jesus on that list? The gospel is Jesus, without Jesus forgiveness of sin, justification, and heaven really do not mean much of anything. The goal of the gospel is Jesus.
Do we live our lives worthy of Jesus? When people see our lives do they see that we value Jesus? When we make Jesus only a small part of our life we are showing people that Jesus is only of some value to us.
For the things that matter the most in life, like our family, Jesus is the greatest thing we could ever give them. When we show our family that we value Jesus and that He is of great worth, they will begin to pursue Him.
When we show the worth of Jesus others will be like the man in Matthew 13:44.
"The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field."
Why, becasue he recognizes the worth of the treasure. Jesus' worth is infinite.
We will treasure Jesus more when we know Him more. Get to know Him more, pursue knowing him deeply.
