Everything But Jesus Is Nothing

Kyle McMahon teaches on how the joy in our life should be connected to Jesus, His Gospel, and a relationship with God.

Philippians 3:1-11

Watch Watch

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

(Philippians 3:1)

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

(Philippians 3:2)

who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh

(Philippians 3:3)

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: 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; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to righteousness under the law, blameless.

(Philippians 3:4-6)

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

(Philippians 3:7-8)

in order that I may gain Christ 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—

(Philippians 3:8-9)

that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

(Philippians 3:10-11)
