Most days I want a lot of things. In a bizarre twist of circumstance, tonight, I want nothing. It is not just about being satisfied with what I have. I want to want nothing – to have nothing, to be nothing, to know nothing. I want to be stripped of everything the world gives. Only then can I bask in God’s true beauty and majesty and all-sufficiency.
To own nothing.
To gain everything.
To be complete in Jesus, because he will be all I have.
That is when I can truly say, he is all I need.
Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ
