Paul wants us to appreciate “the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus [as] Lord” compared to all else in life. Today, let’s give thanks for the Lord Jesus throughout our day. I wonder what he will show us as we focus upon him?
Jesus is the Bread of Life who gives the deepest satisfaction and joy. He is the Good Shepherd, the One in whom we can seek security and place our utmost confidence. He is the Light of the World giving guidance and direction even in the darkest times of life. He is the True Vine through whom we are connected to God’s strength, love, and grace. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life in whom we walk in wholeness, hope, and truth. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away all our sins.
Give praise, honor, and thanksgiving to the Lord Jesus this day. Watch for what he wishes to teach you.
