How badly do you and I desire to know Jesus? I don't know about you, but I'm convicted by Paul's words in this week's reading from Philippians 3. He expresses his desire to know Jesus, stating, "I consider everything garbage compared to knowing Christ." He penned those words from a Roman prison cell. He meant business, and put his money where his mouth was.
I'm inspired by Paul's life, and I want to desire Jesus as he did. I'm not always convinced that this is seen in my actions.
