Joy in Loss and Gain - (Philippians 3:1-11)

Joy in Loss and Gain - (Philippians 3:1-11)

Anything, all my claims to standing before God or anyone else, all are forfeit. But that doesn't leave an empty blank. It is filled by what God has done in Jesus, a power, a standing, a hope, that I could not by myself imagine. Created by Jesus' faithful gift of himself, it is a standing that's unshakable because it depends not on me but on him. God gives that rightness with God to all who trust/believe in Jesus and what he has done. It is beyond our understanding, but we continually explore its meaning with our lives. It is being shaped by Jesus cross. It makes demands. It may involve suffering. It leads by the complex experiences and challenges of life to hope, true life, resurrection.
