JESUS means a LOT to you or is EVERYTHING?

There was a missionary in South-East Asia, who was captured by some guerillas & freedom fighters & they were Marxists. He actually walked with them for three weeks through the jungles. And he had quite a good relationship with group of freedom fighters, & they talked about Marxism & they talked about Jesus & they went backwards & forwards.

When the missionary was released - the leader of the freedom fighters said something very interesting: he said "I see that your message about Jesus is more powerful than ours. But we will win, because Jesus means a lot to you, but the revolution means everything to us."

And the question I keep asking myself is: Does Jesus mean a lot to us or is everything? Is Jesus my most important hobby or is this business of life & death. (Ian Powell: "Learning the game by watching others play”)

Mat 13:44 CEV): ‘The kingdom of heaven is like what happens when someone finds treasure hidden in a field and buries it again. A person like that is happy and goes and sells everything in order to buy that field.”
