Today's Verse : Philippians 3:7-8


March 7, 2012

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, ....
-- Philippians 3:7-8

Paul had accomplished great things in his spiritual life before
he became a Christian. His devotion to God and to the Word of God
was legendary. But he counted his past accomplishments as garbage,
compared to knowing Christ and the grace he had received. What he
found in Jesus was salvation, not just salvation from sin and
death, but salvation to a life of grace and power.

Almighty and Faithful Father, thank you for your grace that
rescued me from legalism, pride, arrogance, sin, and despair. Thank
you for the perfection you have given me in Jesus. Please use me to
help others come to know your grace more fully. In Jesus' name I
pray. Amen.
