Wesley's Notes for Philippians 3:10


3:10 The knowledge of Christ, mentioned in the eighth verse, is here more largely explained. That I may know him - As my complete Saviour. And the power of his resurrection - Raising me from the death of sin, into all the life of love. And the fellowship of his sufferings - Being crucified with him. And made conformable to his death - So as to be dead to all things here below.


People's Bible Notes for Philippians 3:10


Php 3:10 That I may know him. By enjoying his presence in the soul; an experimental knowledge. And the power of his resurrection. The resurrection demonstrated him to be the Son of God with power (Ro 1:4). The mighty power that worked in his resurrection works in the saints (1) in their resurrection from spiritual death to a new life (Col 2:13 Eph 1:19-23). It is therefore a present power. (2) It works also when they are lifted from the dead to eternal life. Consciousness of the victory over sin is the earnest of the ultimate triumph over death. And the fellowship of his sufferings. Christ's life is the plan of that of the saint. Like him, we take the cross, are crucified with him (Ro 6:6), are baptized into his death (Ro 6:3), are planted in the likeness of his death, and are risen with him (Col 3:1). In all these we look to the suffering Savior, and are conformable to his death. Not only do we take the "form" of his sufferings, but we sympathize with him. If the obedience is from the heart, there is a partaking of his sufferings.

    We will have bodies like Jesus, not Angels.
  • Nuhu Zakka Abamu for verse 10
    My prayer every day is,may the whole nation be save through the power of his resurrection amen
  • Yes Philipian 3:21 means that we will have bodies like those of angels. Actual a human being is a triune being that is the spirit, the soul and the physical body flesh . What is actually cremeted or what actually die is the physical body for flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven , your spirit and soul remains fully alive, this means in physical dearth you are fully conscious but invisible but you can communicate with other spirits, you will be able to see or move to spiritual worlds like paradise or hell.
  • Rhonda Matthews for verse 10
    My Pastor just preach on knowing Him. Our goal as Christians should be to know him more, and more. Heaven is an aspect of knowing Him, a reward, but so not the goal. Heaven is a part of Him, but it is not Him.
