8 Yea, doubtless I think [a]all things but loss for the excellent knowledge sake of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have counted all things loss, and do judge them to be dung, that I might [b]win Christ,
9 And might be found in [c]him, that is, [d]not having mine own righteousness, which is of the Law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, even the righteousness which is of God through faith,
10 [e]That I may [f]know him, and the virtue of his resurrection, and the [g]fellowship of his afflictions, and be made conformable unto his death,
Philippians 3:8He shutteth out all works, as well those that go before, as those that come after faith.
Philippians 3:8That in their place I might get Christ, and of a poor man become rich: so far off am I from losing anything.
Philippians 3:9In Christ: for they that are found without Christ, are subject to condemnation.
Philippians 3:9That is, to be in Christ, to be found not in a man’s own righteousness, but clothed with the righteousness of Christ imputed to him.
Philippians 3:10This is the end of righteousness by faith touching us, that by the virtue of his resurrection we may scape from death.
Philippians 3:10The way to that eternal salvation is to follow Christ’s steps, by afflictions and persecutions, until we come to Christ himself, who is our mark whereat we shoot, and receive that reward whereunto God calleth us in him. And the Apostle setteth these true exercises of godliness against those vain ceremonies of the Law, wherein the false apostles put the sum of godliness.
