Title: Knowing Christ the Lord

Text: Philippians 3:7-11 (ESV)

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, 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— 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.

Sermon Notes:

How can we truly know (not just know about) Jesus Christ?

  1. Experience Christ in a personal way
  2. Understand His righteousness – it’s not about what we do or what we’ve done
  3. Live in His power
