Philippians 3 - King James Version

All for Christ

Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.

Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation! For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh, though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so: circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee; concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.

But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. 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 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 faith10 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.

Pressing Toward the Goal

12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. 16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.

Our Citizenship in Heaven

17 Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. 18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things. 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

More On The Book of Philippians

For more from the book of Philippians: Philippians 1 Philippians 2 Philippians 3 Philippians 4

The Book of Philippians is a very powerful book because in it we see some powerful truths about God and His dealings with us through the teachings of the Apostle Paul.

It is in this book that we learn the all familiar text when Paul said that he learned how to abase and to abound and then said that he can do all things through Christ that strengthens him.

Sometimes in our own lives, we don't know what to focus on, what to think about or how we should proceed in traversing the winding road that we sometimes face in life, but the Apostle Paul reminds us that God shall supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory by the risen Jesus Christ.

As you read Philippians 3, may you be filled with knowledge and the assurance that God is with you and His grace is indeed sufficient for you!

I'm reminded of one scenario when The Lord wanted me to pray for a man.

I didn't want to. I really didn't want to, but over and over the Lord told me, "Go, and pray for Him"
Why didn't the Lord use someone else?

For some strange reason, it seemed as if it always came down to Him asking me to do it. It had to be about ten minutes of resisting the Lord in my mind until I finally relented. Now thinking back, I should have done it from the first time that He asked me to do it. But I was growing in the things of the Lord. In fact, I still am.

You see, we are not alone, and just as the Lord could speak to me to pray for that man, the Lord can speak to you in your times of need, and the times of need for others and bring swift change and deliverance as you let Him do what He wants to do.

God is awesome!

Sometimes in our own lives, we don't know what to focus on, what to think about or how we should proceed in traversing the winding road that we sometimes face in life, but the Apostle Paul reminds us that God shall supply all of our needs; God does this by His Spirit.
