"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Philippians 3:1-21

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 and be found in him. 

Chapter 3 of Philippians is one of the richest and most profound chapters in the NT. Paul, in brilliant language calls us to rejoice in our losses when compared to the profit of gaining Christ and to be found in him. Join us as we as a community live and worship and long for a more robust understanding of what it means to truly treasure Christ more than anything in this life.
