PHIL 3:9 My passion is to be consumed with him and not clinging to my own righteousness based in keeping the written Law. My righteousness will be his, based on the faithfulness of Jesus Christthe very righteousness that comes from God.
10And I continually long to know the wonders of Jesus more fully and to experience the overflowing power of his resurrection working in me. I will be one with him in his sufferings and I will be one with him in his death.
11Only then will I be able to experience complete oneness with him in his resurrection from the realm of death.
12I admit that I havent yet acquired the absolute fullness that Im pursuing, but I run with passion into his abundance so that I may reach the purpose that Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover.
13I dont depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead.
14I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus. TPT
