The Exchange

Paul counts as loss those things he thought were gain.
He called these gains 'loss' compared to 'the surpassing 
worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.'

The exchange of dross for surpassing worth.
The exchange of the temporal for the eternal.

Those things that are gain to me do not give me life...

Papa--Such surrender is hard. I try to suck life from
what has no life at all. This house is beautiful but
gives me no life. The church is precious but only
because it contains spirit filled Believers. I feel
connected to the past here but you say, 'let the dead
bury their dead. I AM YOUR LIFE!' Ah, yes, I am
intertwined with Your incomparable eternal Son.
To know Him-- as my only source of Life.
