Is Jesus Worth it?
By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward. Hebrews 11:24-26 ESV
Is the Christian life really worth it? Is giving up worldly pleasures worth it? Everyone around me “seems” to be having the time of their lives, and all hell seems to be unleashed on me. Sin is fun for a season but it’s fleeting. And when it’s gone it leaves destruction. Today we have a choice. Do we gratify our flesh or de we feed our Spirit. Our flesh is dying day by day, but our Spirit is being renewed day by day. Tomorrow we will have the same choice. As we will all the days of this life. For the true follower of Jesus sin can “seem” gratifying in the moment, but the hang-over will come. The feeling of great regret along with an overwhelming feeling of great failure will leave us wishing we never indulged ourself. Choose this day whom you will serve. I can personally say Jesus is absolutely worth it. Love y’all.
