Paul had accomplished some pretty big things. He had every right to think he was the bomb; that he had arrived. But after all looking at all he had accomplished, he decided to write it off as “garbage” when compared with the greatness of knowing Christ. We can take a lesson from Paul in this regard as we should be considering our relationship with Christ and serving Him to be of first priority. But, that just isn’t the case in most instances. So how do I do that?, you might ask. Begin with Bible study and prayer at a regular time each day. Wait and see what God will do.
1. What changes in my life will I be willing to make in order to make my relationship with Christ a bigger priority?
2. How can I change my plans, goals, and desires to be more in line what Christ will be teaching me through our renewed relationship?
Challenge: Begin with Bible study and prayer at a regular time each day. There are many great Bible reading plans available. Don’t let the “I’m too busy” disease get a foothold.
