This is my prayer for you and for me, that we fully rely on Jesus! That we put no confidence in our own effort or the efforts of fellow humans, rather put all of our faith in Him. May we each experience and live in the power that raised Him from the dead, and count it joy to share in His sufferings…today and always!
For we who worship by the Spirit of God are the ones who are truly circumcised. We rely on what Christ Jesus has done for us. We put no confidence in human effort, and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith. I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised him from the dead. I, want to suffer with him, sharing in his death. Philippians 3: 3, 9-10
