Is It Worth It?
The new iPhone X is now available for pre-order and will be coming out in the beginning of November. The cost to order is 999$. The price for one phone is a thousand dollars; and the pre-ordering for this device are off the charts. In less than an hour of the launch for the iPhone, the wait time for households after the release date is as short as two weeks and as long as five weeks — apparently, the massive chunk of change and the wait have not stopped us from getting this new tech.
This is how we all operate. We make our decisions on this: is it worth it? You can say pleasure-driven, what brings satisfaction, joy-junkies, or whatever clever wording you can think of. The bottom line we have in mind, whether thought out or implied, is this: is it worth it? Ultimately, this is the question we must keep in mind in regards to Christ, the gospel, and eternity. Is Jesus worth it? Is denying myself and killing my sin worth it? Is entrusting myself to the reproach I will bear, the desires and things I must forsake, and following the hard sayings of Jesus, really worth it?
