I love Paul

November 1st, 2007

I’m finding the longer I have been a Christian, the more I understand and can relate to the Apostle Paul. Here is a few great verses from Philippians chapter three…

“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”. (Philippians 3:8-9 NIV)

I just love to sit and mediate on things like this. As I read it I can almost hear his words and the heart behind them. Awesome stuff!
