Pastor’s Newsletter Article

This is the latest of the articles Pastor Richert writes for the monthly church newsletter.

Christ Is Better

We live in a competitive society. It seems we are always comparing what we have with what other people have. Who has the better house or car or job? Who has the better family or church or school? If we could have what we want, we would make sure that what we have is better than what others have.

The problem with this thinking is that since we are sinners, what we think we want may not be what is truly best for us. More money or more possessions may not be good for us. Better cars or better homes may not be good for us. More prestigious churches or schools may not be good for us.

The writer of Hebrews warns us about thinking we are better off with the things the world offers us. “Make sure your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He, Himself has said, ‘I will never desert you nor will I ever forsake you’ ” (13:5).

Having Christ is better than having everything the world says is valuable. Christ is better than money or possessions or popularity or prestige or power. When we have Christ, He says we have everything we truly need. Christ is always with us, and He knows exactly what is best for us.

Let’s not compare what we have with what others have. We have Christ. He is far better.
