Losing to Win (Philippians 3:7-11)Gearl Spicer, April 24, 2011
Part of the Life Skils - Focusing On What Counts series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Philippians 3:7–11 (Listen)
7 But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. 8 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, in order that I may gain Christ 9 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—10 that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
Giving up something, learning to do the math and experiencing God's power are all ways to lose in order to win. Gearl Spicer explores this subject in today's Easter message.
