I agree with the Apostle Paul. In comparison to knowing Christ, every benefit and every pursuit in this life is virtually meaningless.
The greatest privilege, the greatest honor, the greatest joy of my life is knowing Him and my worst day as a Christian is a thousand times greater than my best day before Christ!
I will never get over the fact that when my family was utterly lost, without God and completely uninterested in finding out about Him, He came looking for us. Thankful doesn't even begin to describe what I feel in my heart today and EVERY day!
I speak for my whole family when I say knowing Christ, being a part of and serving His glorious Church is the greatest thing that ever happened to us.
Never one second of regret or looking back because He is the ultimate prize.
Thank you, Lord for rescuing me and my family. We will remember your works and tell every generation about the miracles you have done for us.
