Suppose I actually wrote a post on that topic.
Suppose I actually asked you to write comments about it.
Suppose we were all completely honest and candid and shameless in the way we expressed our thoughts regarding it.
Suppose we confessed our lust. Our lust for stuff. Our lust for power and influence. Our lust for flesh. Our lust for self-satisfaction. Our lust for being right all the time. Our lust for acclaim and attention. Our lust for uniqueness, distinctiveness, better-than-ness.
Would we be able to say what Paul did?
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.
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. ~ Philippians 3:7-11
I don’t know about you, but I can’t write anything that I miss most about being a sinner.
Because I still am.
