'For i reckon that the suffering of this present time is nothing compared to the glory which shall be revealed in us'
In economics we were taught about Opportunity Cost, meaning the cost or value of the forgone alternative.If u decided to purchase a car instead of a Bus, the opportunity cost is the Bus.
In like manner, the Holy Spirit would have us know tonight that in following Christ we must always remember that the cost or value of the things we left behind is nothing compared to the glory that we now have in Christ.
There's no need for you to embrace the forgone alternative (Old Creation, sinful life) anymore. Irrespective of whatever tribulations, or trials of faith you might be in at the moment.
Remember the opening scripture, the suffering of this Present time is NOTHING compared to the Glory which shall be Revealed in You.
I urge you tonight, to count your struggles, pains and afflictions as NOTHING. There's a Glory for every Affliction. Don't look back when things get tough.LOOK UP!
Central Truth:What you have in Christ is glorious don't embrace the forgone alternative.
FOCUS SCRIPTURE:Romans 8:18
Lord, let me never embrace the forgone alternative in JESUS name.
