Sunday Thoughts: I Now Consider Loss

Posted: 10/26/2008 by that's Elbert in Christianity, Sunday Thoughts

But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.

Taken from the NIV Bible, Philippians 3:7-9

    My Pastor quoted just that same passage on Sunday. It was nice.
