Gain vs. Loss

“But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.” (Phil. 3:7-8a)

On a day when I am recovering from sickness and my feelings are all out of sort, I can still remember that I have Christ Jesus as my Lord and Savior. He is *everything* to me. He keeps me and intercedes for me. Nothing can separate me from Him, not even my foggy feelings and unfocused thoughts. Once again, I am so thankful that my salvation, or even my sense of my salvation, does not depend on me.
