Daily word for 6 June 2017 – Philippians 3:7-9
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from Philippians 3:7-9 (NIV):
7 But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, 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 is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.
As you continue to grow in your faith, know that Christ is more important than anything here on this earth. Never put anything (including yourself) above God!
