Knowing Jesus was enough for Saint Paul. He traveled the world, endured hardship and suffering, and eventually gave his life in service to Christ Jesus. Why?
Because of the incomparable worth of knowing Christ.
In this section of Philipians, Saint Paul lists some of the things he gave up in order to know Christ and the power of his resurrection. In Christ, Paul found a sure and certain promise that he and other believers would be raised from the dead to enjoy eternal life. This promise freed him to serve Christ even when the work was difficult or dangerous. It was the source of his courage when facing death.
In this sermon from March 13, 2016, Pastor Hinkle reminds us that we have the same promises and that they can produce the same results in our lives.
