designed to have a lasting impact on eternity. Everyone will
die, but few people will ever truly live. To live like a
to live with honor before God and others, to live with
commitment to principle, to live with dedication to a cause,
to live with compassion for others, is to live in a way that
will echo in eternity.

I have suffered the loss of
all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may
gain Christ. —nkjv Philippians 3:8
Minter is in the junk business. The son of a
junkyard owner, he circles the globe researching
junk. In his book Junkyard Planet, he chronicles the
multibillion-dollar industry of waste recycling. He
notes that entrepreneurs around the world devote
themselves to locating discarded materials such as
copper wire, dirty rags, and plastics and
repurposing them to make something new and useful.
After the apostle Paul turned his life over to
the Savior, he realized his own achievements and
abilities amounted to little more than trash. But
Jesus transformed it all into something new and
useful. Paul said, “Whatever were gains to me I now
consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more,
I consider everything a loss because of the
surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord,
for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider
them garbage, that I may gain Christ” (Phil. 3:7-8).
Having been trained in Jewish religious law, he had
been an angry and violent man toward those who
followed Christ (Acts 9:1-2). After being
transformed by Christ, the tangled wreckage of his
angry past was transformed into the love of Christ
for others (2 Cor. 5:14-17).
If you feel that
your life is just an accumulation of junk, remember
that God has always been in the restoration
business. When we turn our lives over to Him, He
makes us into something new and useful for Him and
Are you wondering how to become a
new person? Romans 3:23 and 6:23 tell us that when
we admit we are sinners and ask for God’s
forgiveness, He gives us the free gift of eternal
life that was paid for by the death and resurrection
of Jesus. Talk to Him now about your need.
Christ makes all things new.
INSIGHT: The change Paul experienced
as a result of his encounter with Christ on the
Damascus Road is evidenced in today’s Bible passage.
Paul warns believers about enemies of the faith who
seek to impose on them the old legalism he used to
champion before he encountered the grace of God in
Christ. Paul understood that physical circumcision
in the tradition of Judaism can do nothing to redeem
the human heart. Instead, redemption comes through
Christ: “For it is we who are the circumcision, we
who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ
Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh” (v.

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
