Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Philippians 3:7


3:7 But all these things, which I then accounted gain, which were once my confidence, my glory, and joy, those, ever since I have believed, I have accounted loss, nothing worth in comparison of Christ.


People's Bible Notes for Philippians 3:7


Php 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. These things which were counted as a gain he now counts as nothing; nay, as loss, instead of gain for Christ. Instead of saving him, a trust in them would have been eternal ruin.

    Forgetting, is as in the basic English version loosening from the past, is a process. You have to give your Past actively to Father God that the Holy Spirit can heal, teach and comfort you. Sometimes a counselor is needed to face, handle the past.

    As we live our lives in this foreign world, the Apostle Paul guides us thru the challenges we face on daily basis. We face hatred, our fallen past, the temptation of compromise, and other obstacles that may hender us to pursue perfection in Christ Jesus. This chapter is very valuable for the true Christian believer. I could write alot more, but this is just the beginning of real life.

    If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

    Paul knew that his temporal life in Adam was to be dealt with through the Holy Spirit and that he would all of his earthlyAdamic life be subject to the weakness of the mind and the flesh. In this, he pressed toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.That I may know him, and the power of His return
