Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:1 - Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:2 - Watch out for those dogs, those evildoers, those mutilators of the flesh.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:3 - For it is we who are the circumcision, we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh—

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:4 - though I myself have reasons for such confidence. If someone else thinks they have reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more:

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:5 - circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee;

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:6 - as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for righteousness based on the law, faultless.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:7 - But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:8 - What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:9 - and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in[fn] Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:10 - I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:11 - and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:12 - Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:13 - Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:14 - I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:15 - All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:16 - Only let us live up to what we have already attained.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:17 - Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:18 - For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:19 - Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things.

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:20 - But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,

Unchecked Copy BoxPhl 3:21 - who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
