2011 Philippians Memory Moleskine
Week 12 :: Philippians 3:7-14
7 But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.
8 Indeed, I count everything as loss
because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.
For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things
and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ
9 and be found in him,
not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law,
but that which comes through faith in Christ,
the righteousness from God that depends on faith—
10 that I may know him and the power of his resurrection,
and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,
11 that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect,
but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.
13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own.
But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind
and straining forward to what lies ahead,
14 I press on toward the goal for the prize
of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
