You are my portion, O LORD; I have said that I would keep your words. Psalms 119:57 NKJV
Are you willing to lose everything to gain Christ? Like St. Paul we should consider Christ as most important in our lives. We should be willing to suffer and lose everything in exchange of the priceless and excellent knowledge of Christ. If we have Christ we have everything because He is the source of everything we need in this life. Most of all we are assured of our resurrection and eternal blessed life in heaven.
We are partakers of the glory of Christ our Lord. We are privileged to take portions of His flesh and blood, the blessed bread and wine during our Passover when we remember His suffering and death for the remission of our sins. Oh great is His love for you and me. We were then sinners to be burn in hell but then His Agape love saved us. We are now part of His body and His Spirit is in us. Genuine peace, happiness and provisions we now enjoy! What then should we give Him in return. Since our soul acknowledges His mercy and grace, our hearts rejoice in celebration of His Agape love.
His great love leads us to commit and devote ourselves in serving Him. We promise in this Covenant of Love that we shall obey all of His commands. We shall bind them upon our hearts and tie them around our neck so that we are always reminded of Him. Having the excellent knowledge of God should bring us to our knees in praise, worship and thanksgiving
