“Yes, I gave it all up in order to know Him, that is, to know the power of His resurrection and fellowship of His sufferings as I am being conformed to His death, so that somehow I might arrive at being resurrected from the dead.”
Philippians 3:10-11 CJB
When we give up the things of the world, it always brings us closer to the LORD! Because one day we will come to the end of this life!
“But for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made Adonai Elohim my refuge, so that I can tell of all Your works.”
Psalm 73:28 CJB
As the world gets rougher and more evil, the more we need to remove ourselves from it and draw closer to God!
“For I know that my Redeemer lives, that in the end He will rise on the dust (earth); so that after my skin has been thus destroyed, then even without my flesh, I will see God.”
Job 19:25-26 CJB
Today, realize, the world really has nothing for us, so when we give up worldliness and draw near to God, we really don’t give up anything, but gain the presence of the LORD!
Have a blessed day in Him!
