|Staying in the Word|
Chapter Three, Lesson Two
REJECTING THE WORLD Page 3
V. 8 ** As Paul has re-evaluated all of his past religious efforts; it prompts a deeper, even broader value judgment...what is it?
** What were some of the other things that Paul was willing to give up in light of the surpassing value of knowing Christ?
** Would you be willing to count your old value system of this world and your life in it as a loss (even harmful), when compared to the surpassing value of knowing Jesus Christ?
** Back in Philippians 3:8, Paul goes on to say that he has already lost all the "stuff" that used to be important to him. How does he now evaluate it?
** Why does Paul draw a connection between losing all things, counting
them as rubbish and being able to "gain Christ"?
