QTVOTD: Attained nothing; Given everything…

“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.” Philippians 3:8-9 -> me:  Today is (and will continue to be) a day of reflection and meditation on God’s Word.  I have about 10 – 12 passages memorized and after a time of prayer in the prayer closet this morning I realize my deep need for this.  I am reminded in my quiet time today that all that matters is ‘being found in Him’…that’s it…’being FOUND IN Him’.  When I am found in Him, there is nothing about me that matters because it is His righteousness I wear.  The more that I live in this place of fellowship IN HIM, I will find myself only doing things that reflect HIM.  When I live this life I am called to, it is in recognition that I have ATTAINED nothing…I have been GIVEN everything.  As far as committed memory verses, I am working on growing my list of memorized passages but here (in the comments) is what I have committed so far.
