This is the only thing that matters: “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.” (Philippians 3: 10-11) This is the only thing that matters!

After all of these other little things in life are finished — some of them are going to have some kind of affect on us for three-score-and-ten – they do affect us, they are important to us – but winning Christ is the only thing that matters. Being found in him, knowing a saving union with him, is life eternal and it is all that matters.  It doesn’t matter how great or terrible my day was — if he would just speak to me for just a moment – this is the only thing that matters. Christ is not a “big part” of a believers life, he is not “number one” – Christ is all! Knowing him, having him, being found in him is the only thing that matters. May the Lord cause us to truly see this and live it!
