The Reward of Christianity
 
The reward of Christianity is Christ
Do you journey to the Grand Canyon for the souvenir T-shirt or the snow globe with the snowflakes that fall when you shake it?
   No.
The reward of the Grand Canyon is the Grand Canyon.
The wide-eyed realization that you are part of something ancient, splendid, powerful, and greater than you.

The cache of Christianity is Christ.
Not money in the bank or a car in the garage or a healthy body or a better self image.
Secondary and tertiary fruits perhaps.
But the Fort Knox of faith is Christ.
Fellowship with Him.
Walking with Him.
Pondering Him.
Exploring Him.
The heart stopping realization that in Him you are part of something
                ancient,
                                endless,
                                                unstoppable,
                                                                and unfathomable.
And that He,
                who can dig the Grand Canyon with His pinkie, thinks you are worth His death on Roman timber.
Christ is the reward of Christianity.

Philppians 3:8  Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord:

Trust God for your day, ….Today
