===

…looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Hebrews 12:2

===

Why should we look to Jesus?

We should look to him to see how we should act.
Because he sacrificed for us.
We should look to him to see why we should worship him.
Because he is seated at God’s right hand.
We should look to him to see what he’s doing for us
He has founded and is perfecting our faith.

And he has done all of this for joy.

The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand.

Psalm 37:23-24

Does a Christian fall? Does someone who is a child of God lose his footing?

Yes.

But he will not be cast headlong, into the dirt. He will not fall all the way.
He will not fail all the way, or die all the way, or lose all the way.

Because his steps are established by the LORD.
Because the LORD upholds his hand.

How is the LORD upholding your hand today?

1 Corinthians 1:18

===

…that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
Philippians 3:10-11

A wise man will do whatever it takes – by ‘any means possible’ – to have a joyful eternity. A God-filled forever.

Anything includes sharing in suffering, becoming like Jesus.

And we do that by taking on his righteousness.
And we do that because Jesus made a way for us in his death.

That is the power of his resurrection.

3-4 Application for Feb 3-4, 2018 :: Philippians 3:9

===

and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith-
Philippians 3:9

Here is the gospel: It’s not your righteousness, it’s Christ.

We will be righteous, one day, through Christ, but that isn’t what saves us.

We have faith in Jesus Christ who was perfectly righteous – that’s what saves us.

That is how we’ll be found in him.

And being found in him is the only way to a happy ending – a happy eternity.

===

But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ

Philippians 3:7-8

There is a lot of good in the world. There is beauty and there is love and there is truth and their is family and friendship and home.

But none of them are worthy anything if you doh’t have Christ.
And even if we lose all of them, we can still have Christ – who is of far more value.

Value, worship, glorify Christ and all these things shall be added to you.

===

For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him…

2 Chronicles 16:9

Is your heart blameless before God?

No? Well then, these words aren’t good news.

But … if your sins have been washed clean by the blood of Jesus, then you are blameless – through the reconciliation with God that only Jesus could create for you.

So then it’s good news: God knows your situation and he will support you in the difficult times. Thank Him. Praise Him. Trust Him.
