But these assets I have come to regard as liabilities because of Christ. More than that, I now regard all things as liabilities compared to the far greater value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things – indeed, I regard them as dung! – that I may gain Christ, Philippians 3:7‭-‬8 NET

Until you have dispossessed yourself of every earthly honour, privilege, credentials, prize, medal or any other achievement that are precious and valuable to you then, you also cannot reach the height of the real and authentic knowledge in life which guarantees your divine usefulness in Christ.

The greatest knowledge you can have in this world is to know Jesus. No other knowledge no matter how grandiose surpasses knowing Jesus. And the greatest achievement in life is to do the will of God that is, to be found only in Christ, pleasing and exalting Him only with your life and living. This is the authentic life.

No other things count in eternity other than Jesus and Jesus only. May the Lord help you to daily live with eternity in view and not to allow mere privileges in this world to rob you of your eternal honour reserved for you in heaven. Do have a restful weekend.

Your brother,

Olufemi Babalola
