Philippians 3:4-6

although I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else has a mind to put confidence in the flesh, I far more: circumcised the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the Law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless. Philippians 3:4‭-‬6 NASB 

Paul, a zealous Jew for the law. He had all the qualifications for a perfect Jew. He lived up to the qualifications of the flesh, the confidence of man. 

Jesus, perfect example of righteousness, the blameless perfect God who came to earth, not only to offer eternal salvation but to also be the perfect example of righteous living. To You be praise, honor and glory. God, in my walk with You, I pray that I put no confidence in the flesh, in myself. My confidence is in You alone. 

Lord, as I look to other brothers and sisters who abide in You, I pray I recognize no one by what they are in the flesh. Even though You were known, Jesus, according to the flesh, yet now You are known in this way no longer. 

For we who are in Christ, are a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Praise and thankfulness to You, God, for all these things are from You, who reconciled us to Yourself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. God, I pray we, the church, Your church, surrender all confidence we have in the flesh and walk in the power of Christ, our perfect example, as we continue the work of reconciliation through the power of Christ, in whose name I pray, amen.

2 Corinthians 5:16‭-‬18 NASB

🌹Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

2 Corinthians 5:20 NASB

How About You?

“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, For He has visited us and accomplished redemption for His people, And has raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of David His servant- Luke 1:68‭-‬69‭ NASB

To grant us that we, being rescued from the hand of our enemies, Might serve Him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before Him all our days. Luke 1:74‭-‬75 NASB

Yes, blessed be the Lord God who came to earth as a man to bring redemption – rescue us from the lifestyle of sin we choose to live in, to atone for our guilt against a Holy, pure and perfect Creator, our Creator.

Jesus paid the price on the cross to rescue us from the hand of our enemies. To reconcile our broken relationship with the Father caused by our disobedient sin. Our relationship, real and personal, with God allows us the privilege of being clothed in Jesus’ righteousness. Undeservedly. Wow!!

With a sacrificial love like that I am grateful that I have  been rescued from my enemies that I might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all my days.

🌹 How about you?

The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.  Psalm 19:7

The sum of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting. — Psalm 119:160

Your commands make me wiser than my enemies,
for they are my constant guide.
Yes, I have more insight than my teachers,
for I am always thinking of your laws.
I am even wiser than my elders,
for I have kept your commandments.
