I kinda promised friends I’d write on a real subject. Here it is: Paul in Philippians says he has goals.
Now there are HIS goals…not some dipstick in Arkansas with his “17 Goals for Your Life.” Nope. Paul’s in ina friicken dungeon and these are his goals.
His goals rule.
Forget Mr. Dipstick.
Laura and I read simply “ But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. 8 More than that, I count all things to be loss [c]in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ,9 and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and [f]the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; 11 iin order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.”
I askd her after anyone too this serious?
