Experts of Christ

13 03 2015

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” – Matthew 22:37

The experts say that if you want to master something, it will take at least 10 thousand hours of practice or study.  Whether it is becoming a master musician, or a professional athlete, or an expert in a specific field, it will require you to invest roughly 10,000 hours or more in the pursuit of becoming a master in that field.  That is a huge time commitment, and only a few people are willing to ultimately pay that price.

Is being an expert of Christ of greater worth than being a master musician or a world class athlete?  Paul seems to think so.  He writes in Philippians 3:8,  “More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord,for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ”.  A genuine disciple understands that Christ is worth committing their lives to follow.

If you have not made the decision to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ, you can do it right now.  There is nothing that will be more rewarding.
