What it means to gain Christ

Paul said that he considered everything in his past life as rubbish that he might gain Christ,

“and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead” (Philippians 3:9-11).

Gaining Christ, means we also gain:

The righteousness of God
The knowledge of Christ
The knowledge of the power of His resurrection
The fellowship of His sufferings
The hope for our own resurrection

Have you delayed becoming a Christian? Do you see what you are missing? Turn to Him today, and be found in Him by being baptized into Him.
