Today is Tuesday, June 28, 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of Philippians 3:8.
Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain ChristPhillipians 3:8.
Paul, the writer of the above passage was once a persecutor of the Christian faith before his conversion on the way to Damascus.
Now even if the bible does not clearly paint the picture of Paul’s escapades while persecuting the followers of Christ; we can still go on to understand that he made a lot of gain from it.
In Acts chapter 9: 2 we see how Paul was sent with letters to go to Damascus and persecute Christians.
We certainly understand that the letters came with some monetary empowerment.
Yes! Paul was getting paid to persecute Christians.
But in our inciting passage for today, he reveals to us that he counts all those things lost now that he has gained Christ.
So beloved in Christ, what is it that you were gaining when you were not in Christ?
And now that you have gained Christ, have you really given it up?
It doesn’t have to be the monetary aspect alone, because the sins that we engage with on a daily basis are those things we should count as a loss if we truly gain Christ.
Pray God to give you the grace to totally give up that sinful lifestyle that is robbing you of gaining Christ.
