Philippians 3 Day 4
More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, Philippians 3:8
Don’t let anything or anyone in the horizontal life keep you from the vertical life of Jesus. This horizontal life can never give us what life with Jesus can give us. The vertical life with Jesus can supply all our needs in the horizontal life with others. Drop what’s horizontal to have what’s vertical. There is nothing more important than knowing Jesus. Think about this: Man can only see to the horizon, but Jesus sees from heaven. He knows our needs and wants before they even arrive on the horizon.
