One of the key themes in Philippians 3 is the idea of righteousness. Paul emphasizes that true righteousness does not come from following religious rituals or obeying the law, but rather from having faith in Jesus and being in a relationship with Him. He encourages the Philippians to “rejoice in the Lord” and to find their identity and purpose in Christ.
I often find it easier to place my trust in things I can see, or touch. Instead of having faith in the offerings of Christ.
But Paul instructs us to let go of the things we can see. The earthly things. And place our faith, in the untouchable, but oh so much more reliable, Christ Jesus.
My prayer today is to have more faith in Christ, and less in this world.
