“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,…”. Philippians 3:8. KJV

Value is not determined by the price paid for something but by the benefit we receive. The decision to purchase is based on the value of the object desired . Paul knew the value of being a Christian. Paul gave up much to live for Christ but he never felt he gave up anything.

So what had Paul found that was worth giving up fleshly glory and fame? He found righteousness through faith; he found happiness and joy in the face of imprisonment and impending death; he found the power of the resurrection, the victory over death. The value of life is far more than the price . Life in Christ is worth it!!!!
