Philippians Devotional 32

The Apostle Paul reveals his pedigree as a Jew compared to the false circumcision, “although I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else has a mind to put confidence in the flesh, I far more: circumcised the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the Law, a Pharisee; as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless, But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ” (Php 3:4-7). Like Paul, your former natural pedigree is replaced by the indwelling life of Jesus Christ.
