Give Jesus Your All

Richard Lawton

Polycarp was born about thirty years after Jesus died. He became a Christian and was later appointed bishop of Smyrna. Polycarp was burned at the stake because he would not worship the Roman emperor. Nothing was more important to Polycarp than his faith in Christ. Jesus was his treasure.

Our treasure may be money, a person, technology, a job, a sport, music, or reading. But when we follow Jesus, he becomes our treasure, the most important part of our lives. Of course, we have room for other things; but we put Jesus at the heart of it all.
