Scripture Lesson: Philippians 3:7-8
On this date in 2007 Boss, the bulldog of then Boston Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon ate the baseball used for the final out of the 2007 World Series according to Papelbon in an interview with the Hattisburg American. Teammate Jason Varitek had given the ball to the reliever when Rockies Seth Smith struck out to end the Series.
Paul is telling the Church at Philippi that there is nothing more important than knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Paul considers everything else to be a loss and rubbish in comparison to knowing Jesus as Lord and Savior. Things that mattered to Paul before was not at all important now and paled in comparison to what Jesus has brought into his life.
1. How important is Jesus in your life?
2. What does it mean to you to have Him as your Lord and Savior?
3. Have you made the decision to ask Him into your heart?
There is nothing in this world that is worth more or can compare with having Jesus as the Lord and Savior of your life!
