Philippians 3:1-11 All For Christ
[Phl 3:1 NKJV]
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.
[Phl 3:2 NKJV]
Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation!
[Phl 3:3 NKJV]
For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,
[Phl 3:4 NKJV]
though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so:
[Phl 3:5 NKJV]
circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, [of] the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee;
[Phl 3:6 NKJV]
concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
[Phl 3:7 NKJV]
But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
[Phl 3:8 NKJV]
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
[Phl 3:9 NKJV]
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;
[Phl 3:10 NKJV]
that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,
[Phl 3:11 NKJV]
if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
