But whatever 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 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 – that I may know Him and the
power of His resurrection,
and may share His suffering, becoming like Him in His death,
that by any means possible I may
attain the resurrection from the dead.
