SUNDAY SERMON ON THE BLOG – SALVATION.

But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ. - Philippians 3:7-8.

Paul had accomplished great things in his spiritual life before he became a Christian.

His commitment to God and to the Word of God was legendary. But he counted his past accomplishments as garbage, compared to knowing Christ and the grace he had received.

What he found in Jesus was salvation, not just deliverance from sin and death, but deliverance to a life of grace and power.


Loving Father, thank you for your grace that delivered me from legalism, pride, egotism, sin, and hopelessness. Thank you for the excellence you have given me in Jesus. By the power of the Holy Spirit, use me to help others come to know your grace more fully. In the wonderful and mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged!
