Have you ever longed for something so much, you were willing to give almost anything for it? Perhaps you were willing to give up sleep to be first in line for the new iPhone or Black Friday sales. Maybe you left a job and city to move to be near someone with whom you hoped to spend the rest of your. Or maybe you emptied your entire savings to start a business you had been dreaming of for years.
Unfortunately, many times the things we long for and expend our time, energy, and money to get fade over time. They don't provide the same level of joy they once did. Is there something in this life that is brings everlasting joy?
Without a doubt there is. But as Pastor Erin Bird warns us in this message from Philippians 1:19-30, it will cost you everything.
