My Loss Is My Gain

Sitting in the house of prayer this morning, I'm completely overwhelmed by this realization– my utter loss is my total gain.

Philippians 3:7-9
But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.

Whatever hold this world has on me is nothing more than trash to be discarded. “Circumcise me again God. Show me some more flesh that I don't need.”
