Day 15 - Philippians 3:7-9

Yet whatever gains I had, these I have come to regard as loss because of Christ. 8 More than that, I regard everything as loss because of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and I regard them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but one that comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God based on faith.                                                                      ~Philippians 3:7-9

In this passage Paul talks about two great changes in his life since knowing Christ:

A change in his values, now seeing everything else of lesser value in comparison with the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord! ~Phil 3:8  

A change in his claim to righteousness, from a self-righteousness based on his own efforts and good works to a Christ-righteousness that is through faith in Christ - the righteousness from God based on faith. ~Phil 3:9

So let me ask:
✔ D
o you feel overwhelmed by the value of knowing Christ Jesus as
    your Savior and Lord?
✔ Do you rejoice in your righteousness from God based on faith?

Once these two things change in your life, so does everything else!
