Scripture at Sunrise 9.7.2015

Sunday Morning | Pastor Steve Wainright | Righteousness Rejected | Philippians 3:2-9
“But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—” -Philippians 3:7-9

Paul had the righteousness of the law outwardly, but struggled inwardly. If salvation could be worked for, Paul would have been close to attaining it. However, all that Paul had credited to his account, he put in the ‘Loss’ column.

What does God see in your life? Does He look and see you trying to attain righteousness or does He see Christ’s perfect righteousness?
