Sony’s Thoughts: Is Jesus truly “all”?

When you look at others with their lands of gold

Think that God has promised you His wealth untold

Count your many blessings. Money cannot buy

Your reward in Heaven or your Home on high

As I was singing that earlier this week, another song came to mind which George Beverly Shea sings:

I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold

I’d rather have Him than have riches untold

I’d rather have Jesus than houses or lands

I’d rather be led by His nail-pierced hand

It is so easy to get our eyes off of eternity and on to the world around us but the fact is there is nothing on earth worth more than Jesus and the eternity that awaits the true Believer. When we sing, “Jesus, You’re my all in all,” do we truly mean it? Would we truly be willing to give up what this world offers if it ensured us a closer walk with Jesus and a Home in eternity with Him?
