"Cost and Value"Stuart Jones “But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.” Philippians 3:7 We all have prized possessions we hold close to our heart. From technological gizmos to transportation items to family treasures passed down to us, there are things in our life on which we place great importance and value. In today’s study passage the apostle Paul reminds us all those things pale in comparison to the gift God has given us through his grace and mercy. What we often consider to be valuable on this earth has absolutely no value in determining our eternal fate. What we should hold close to is the knowledge that Jesus has paved the way to our eternal joy.
