Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
You found that pearl and now there is nothing else worth living for.
Jesus served all. You will serve all.
Jesus prayed. You will pray.
Jesus touched the poor. You will touch the poor.
Jesus cared for the suffering. You will care for the suffering.
Jesus shared the truth of God. You will share the truth of God.
Jesus brought people to God. You will bring people to God.
When we recognize the identity of Jesus we put everything else in life aside to identify with him.
When we realize the significance of God’s love for us in Jesus we want to orient absolutely everything in our life around Him.
When we know Jesus, indeed as the Apostle Paul said, “For me to live is Christ.” This was so true of the early believers that they were mockingly called “Christians” (or Christ-like-ones).
