26 He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward.
The writer of Hebrews is laying out for the audience the men and women who ha, because of their faith in God, done amazing things and endured rough times. They were tested and persevered, they had been killed and now
Live in the presence of God for eternity.
Then it goes to the verse that I believe is what most struggle with.
The reproach of Christ and the beauty of Jesus was greater than anything every seen. The treasures of Egypt, which were great did not compare to Jesus. Is this true of me? Does Jesus appeal to me more than treasures of the earth due? If he doesn’t why? Sometimes, correction, a lot of the times I desire worldly things rather than heavenly things. I want my heart to desire to above reproach for Jesus and for my heart to desire Jesus. Christ is so much greater than ANYTHING I could ever obtain. HE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH!
Lord forgive me that by faith I have desired other things than you. Let my heart only desire
You and you alone.
