What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, 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 is through faith in Christ--the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.
Philippians 3:8-9 NIV
My identity is not in accomplishments or even character. Rather, my identity is in Christ Jesus, my Savior and Lord! Things and accomplishments and standing are but rubbish in comparison.
Have faith in Christ. Rest my identity in Him!
Heavenly Father, thank you for this new day. Thank you for time with family and that I can worship You freely and publicly in the U.S. Help me to remember my identity, which is in You and You alone! I give up all else to the surpassing greatness of knowing You. I love you!
