Just how important should Jesus be to us?

We have to elevate Jesus in our thinking above everyone and everything else, as Paul said of himself when referring to everything about him, past and present,

“Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ” (Philippians 3:8).

If those things stand in the way of us gaining Christ, then we have to count them as rubbish, regardless of what those things are.

Are you ready to make such a commitment to Christ?
