All that a man has or can accomplish is useless if he does not know Christ and attain to the resurrection of the dead. The power of the gospel is experienced by the internal change it has upon the sinner. The internal change wrought by the gospel sets the captive free to serve Jesus. The freedom or new experience that conversion gives when gained can never be suppressed by culture, nationality, race, sin, or force. The righteousness accomplish through Christ inspires us to love and blessing because He first loved us. True religion is liberating.
Philippians3:5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, [of] the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee;
3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things [but] loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [but] dung, that I may win Christ,
3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
3:11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
