Matthew 6:16-24 Read the New Testament in a Year: Acts 9:1-19 The Bible contains several dozen “better than” statements. What’s better than fame? What’s better than wealth? What’s better than even life itself? I think about what I believe is “better than” being with Jesus. When I’m seated in Christ, I begin to believe that knowing Jesus and being with Him is better than any life I could design or even imagine for myself. Should I say that again? Knowing Jesus and being with Him is better than any life I could design or imagine for myself. What’s the very best life you could imagine for yourself? Marriage and children? Houses? A prestigious or meaningful career? Beauty? Fame? Wealth? Is knowing Jesus better than any of these? And by “better,” I mean this: Is knowing Jesus more pleasurable, more exciting, more satisfying, more meaningful, more purposeful, and more full than anything I have or hope to possess? Can I really say that?]]>
