Philippians 3:1-11 (ESV)

 

1 Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you.

 

2 Look out for the dogs, look out for the evildoers, look out for those who mutilate the flesh.

 

3 For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God[b] and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh—

 

4 though I myself have reason for confidence in the flesh also. If anyone else thinks he has reason for confidence in the flesh, I have more:

 

5 circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee;

 

6 as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law,[c] blameless.

 

7 But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.

 

8 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

 

9 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—

 

10 that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,

 

11 that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
