Luke 9:25 (NKJV) For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and is himself destroyed or lost?
In today’s word Jesus ask a riveting question that challenges (The disciples)and our desires and choices. Have you ever desired something so much that you didn’t realize what you would be giving up in order to gain that which you desired? Maybe it was a relationship, job, money, love, acceptance, just to name a few.
So, while they were busy trying to acquire this desire or need? What is the value of this desire? And how do you approach getting it? How do you feel once you have it? Where does it take you? When do you know you have made a good or bad decision? These are just a few critical questions we all must answer while making choices in our lives.
In much the same way, many people spend their lives striving to get all of the things that should make them happy, but they never develop a personal relationship with God. And our relationship with God is the one which will provide the real answer to the questions for our lives. How do you really feel about your desires and how you go about accomplishing them?
I challenge you to evaluate your personal relationship with God. Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior? Someday, you will have to leave this earth. When that day comes, will you have the right choices and desire you really need in your life? I recommend Jesus; He is a friend of mine, blessings and peace.
