Jesus Has Made Us His Own

Media, Philippians, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett

Philippians

Today in our study of Philippians we have reached chapter 3:12 – 4:1, in which Paul is exhorting us, amidst the many varied difficulties and discouragements of life, to keep trusting, straining, and pressing on to know Jesus and, one day, be with him. The summary statement of this passage is in verse 12, “I press on to make it my own because Christ Jesus has made me His own.” Paul describes our condition outside of Christ as those who through indifference to Christ and dedication to our own appetites and desires have become enemies of the cross, headed toward destruction with eyes fixed on earthly things. But, in Christ we are described as citizens of heaven, our hope found in our savior who will transform our lowly bodies to be like His glorious body, and because of this hope can stand firm in the Lord.
