If we have Christ and his kingdom, we have all that matters. 
— Jared Wilson

You lose your head in your joy in knowing God and don’t care if people think you are crazy. Yet you are probably at your sanest when you come to the place where you abandon all else but your desire for God. Once you have truly experienced the anointing of the Spirit, your money, reputation, love for the world, fear of what people will say and so on all pale into insignificance.
— R. T. Kendall 

Were the whole realm of nature mine

That were an offering far too small; 

Love so amazing, so divine

Demands my soul, my life, my all. 

— Isaac Watts 



Reflection Questions 

1) Based on your daily priorities, strongest desires, greatest fears, what in this life is the most precious, most valuable thing to you? 

2) What difference might seeing the “surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus” (Phil. 3:8) and prizing “the precious blood of Christ” (1 Pet. 1:19) make for the way you live in the coming week?
