Grace for you today !
Knowledge of Christ Our Excellence!
“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. But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.”
Philippians 3:5-7 NKJV
Cited above is a classical example of self righteousness, self achievements and attainment of great heights of Apostle Paul. He was of the pure breed of the stock of Israel. He had every credential that a successful man can boast about . We can say that he was a pedigree who could trace back his genealogy right up to Adam. Yet, in comparison with the knowledge of Jesus Christ, he considers all his laurels & past credentials as rubbish . What a radical statement !
To be very honest, what Paul considered and concluded is what we will conclude as well if only we had the revelation of Jesus Christ our Lord through the Holy Spirit.
All of us pursue after one thing or other in life . But, if we ask ourselves the question , “ what is it that keeps me fully satisfied in this life and joyful through time and eternity ?”
The answer is “Nothing”
Yes , frankly speaking there isn’t anything at all except for “knowing Jesus Christ “.
In knowing Christ , you will get to know your true identity and escape ‘identity crisis *’. *You will live satisfied & Joyful!
