This morning in our Greatest Sermons class we listened to a challenging message. It’s difficult to listen to this sermon and not be moved to evaluate what it is your life revolves around. I’ll share a couple of my favorite quotes. :)
“Oh how jealous Jesus is tonight that you do not waste your lives. You have a gift and it is called life and it’s not about accumulating things. This night, your soul may be required of you and then whose will all those toys be?”
“How does Paul make Christ look great? Answer: by experiencing Christ as such a treasure that everything else in his life is as nothing by comparison. I count everything: money as loss, food as loss, looks as loss, friends as loss, family as loss, job and success as loss, graduation as loss-- in comparison with the treasure that Christ has become for me....
....How do you make Christ look great in your life and thus, not waste it? Money is given to you so that you might use money in a way that shows money is not your treasure -- Christ is. Food is given to you so that you might eat it in such a way that it will be plain food is not your treasure -- Christ is. Friends, family are given to you so that you might live with them in such a way that it will be plain to the world they are not your treasure -- Christ is.”
-John Piper, ‘Don’t Waste Your Life’
