At the center of growing intimate with God is becoming increasingly convinced that Christ is worth more than anything else.
In Matthew 13:44 Jesus proclaims, “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.”
In America, we have so much and it’s so easy to fall in love with all that comfort can give. For some of us, our families are most important. For others, it’s our job that is regarded above all else. But whatever false-alters we are prone to worship at, the Bible is clear that God and His priorities must become our everything.
So the question is, what about Jesus makes Him greater, more attractive, and worth more than all else to you?
I challenge you to make a list of those things that would remind you of Christ being the treasure worth selling everything for. After you make the list, put it somewhere that is visual so you can be reminded often of who you are living for and why He’s worth more.
This may also have the side affect of reminding you why spending time seeking Him in His Word is one of the most valuable things you get to do today.
