The Loss of All Things
A Sermon on Philippians 3:7-8
But whatever gain 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 (ESV)
The importance of knowing whether we are Christians or not; conversion; the profoundest change imaginable; Christianity not an addition; but a complete change; a new standard of values; the non-Christian view of life.
