Treasure Christ Through the Word

As Christians, Christ is life.

Paul said in Philippians, “To live is Christ and to die is gain” and that he wanted to “know Christ and the power of His resurrection that he may gain Christ and be found in Him.” For Paul, Christ was life. He was redeemed by His blood, bought at a price he could never provide, and dedicated his life to treasuring Christ, which profoundly impacted the way he lived.

When we treasure Christ it impacts our daily living.

One way we can treasure Christ is to know Him through His Word. The Bible tells us what to believe about God and how to live as obedient children for God’s glory and for our blessing. As we read, study, memorize, listen to, and meditate on the Word of God, we are better able to “live in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ” (Philippians 1).

To know Christ, we know His Word. His grace is at work in us to live according to it and we rejoice!
