Philippians (Program #20) – To be Found in Christ

When someone comes to our home to visit us where might they find us?  Well maybe they find us preoccupied with normal daily human life, may be they find us in good pleasant behavior.  Probably they would find us in neither of these cases we would be happy, nothing sinful here, nothing immoral. But the apostle Paul was not so easily satisfied. He was desperate in earnest in his desire and aspiration to be found in Christ. And not just in the doctrinal, objective way, but that he would be found fully occupied and filled with this One, Whom he love and pursue and to lay hold of.

Philippians (Program #49) -To be Found in Christ in the Righteousness of God Through the Faith of Christ

Philippians 3:9 says “And be found in Him, not having my own righteousness which is out of the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is out of God and based on faith.”  According to this verse, Paul’s own righteousness was intimately related to the law but if we are to be found in Christ we must fulfill the condition of not having our own righteousness which is of the law but a righteousness which is not our own that which is through the faith of Christ the righteousness which is of God based on faith.

A mysterious and deep matter in the book of Philippians and glad to have this opportunity to fellowship about it so that our listeners are to be very clear about what it means to be found in Christ.
