Jesus, Nothing Less

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

As a Christ follower, what is it that you seek the most? Good health? Plenty of Money? The right religious system? Allow me to offer a little pastoral counsel here. If you want to seek the best thing, seek Christ. I can say it this way with equal confidence, seek God. The writer of Hebrews made it perfectly clear that it is a lofty goal because God is a “Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” [Hebrews 11:6].

Seek Him, not doctrine, or religion, or creed, as good as these things are. Many settle for some lesser passion, but the greatest reward goes to those who seek nothing less than Christ. And why is that, you ask? What is that “best reward?” The reward for those who diligently seek Him is nothing short of the heart of Christ. Here’s the way Paul said it, “The Lord—who is the Spirit working in us—makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image” [2Corinthians 3:18].

I can think of no greater reward than becoming like my Savior, my Christ. He had no guilt, so I can release mine. He had no fear, so I can be fearless. He put others first, so can I. 

I can think of no loftier goal than becoming like Christ. Jesus, nothing less!

I have kept My Father’s commands, and I remain in His love. In the same way, if you obey My commands, you will remain in My love. John 15:10
