Put No Confidence In The Flesh 2.
“Though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so: circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee; concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless .” Philippians 3:4-6(NKJV)
Apostle Paul said in our opening Tscripture that concerning the righteousness which is in the Law, he is blameless Moreso, he listed several points by which he should have confidence in the flesh for righteousness yet for all those things he could brag about he said in Philippians 3:8,
“Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,”.
He counted all the things that he could boast about as loss and as dung that he may win Christ.
Why did he say, “that I may win Christ.” He knows that if you approach God based on your own good works, you cannot access what Christ has made
Therefore I encourage you to always come to God based on your faith in Jesus Christ and not on your own good works.
In the Name of Jesus, I declare that I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ lives in me, and the life which I live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me. .
For further study, read:
1 Corinthians 2:2, Galatians 2:15-16, Galatians 5:2-5.
Doing the Word.
Let your goal and your focus be to win Christ not to establish your own righteousness.
