Colossians 3:11, Philippians 3:7-11
Relationships – All of them
If you are single and you constantly have to defend the person you are dating to the godly people that speak into your life, there is a problem.
Everything else –
You have no control – you don’t get to pick and choose what you submit to Christ. Jesus is either Lord of All or He is not Lord at all. You will serve something or someone. Romans 6:17-19
gain/loss – Phil. 3:7-8
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? What was in the gain column is now in the loss column because Christ and nothing else goes in the gain column.
Phil. 3:9 Gospel – Spiritually united, no longer guilty but righteous, you are justified by faith.
Phil. 3:10 Jesus is our greatest treasure. We get to know him in a personal relationship.
Phil. 3:11 You will suffer – face tribulation – be persecuted. Our sufferings conform us more to the image of Christ than anything else.
