Day Five: I Want to Know Christ

Let’s read aloud together from Philippians 3:7-11, 13-14 (NIV):
But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 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 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 on the basis of faith. 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, 11 and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead… 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, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Pray this prayer aloud: “Lord, increase my passion for you and your kingdom, and fill me with endurance to run this race. Help me to press on and desire nothing more than you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Let us worship to the song “Touch of Heaven” by Bethel.
