What now?  Am I consumed with knowing Christ?   Phil.3:8-10

 Criteria # 1: Stay Joyful. v. 1. This is not optional; it is a command to be obeyed at all costs…rejoice in the Lord…period!


Criteria # 2: KEEP LISTENING: the value of repetition: “It may be that one of our faults today is our insatiable desire for novelty.”


Criteria #3:  Cherish Truth — remember who you are:  v. 3. Truth is a privilege to cherish; don’t fight error without distributing truth!


  1. Truth can never be repeated enough.
  2. Don’t be afraid of confrontation; just be sure to confront properly.
  3. Remember that your confidence as a believer is in Christ alone.
  4. Make sure you understand the difference between the inward and the outward.


God help us to be consumed with knowing Christ – to be totally involved in His righteousness and not our own.
