No Confidence In Colorful Metaphors (Philippians 3:4b-14)


Our human condition is such that we are always striving to find our relief, our confidence, in ourselves and our works. But Paul warns against that very strongly in today’s text, going so far as to use some choice Greek…colorful metaphors… Philippians 3:4-14 is not a text to play around with. Once again, while we are looking for Law to do, Paul is busy delivering Christ for us. Don’t miss the sweet Gospel so plainly given in this passage, because the English tradition of translation, once again, hasn’t done us any favors in that area.
