My pastor spoke this morning from Philippians 3. Because it’s almost midnight and I’m feeling pretty tired, I’ll just quote some of the verses I thought to be espeically challenging or thought provoking. You can download an MP3 of the sermon from my church‘s web site.
1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord.
8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
