The Excellence Of Knowing Christ (Philippians 3:8)

Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ

Philippians 3:8 (NKJV)

The excellence of knowing Jesus personally and finding fulfillment in Him means the giving up of things we may have previously relied upon for our identity and security, such as status, worldly success and achievements, and instead finding our worth completely in Christ. When Christ alone becomes our treasure—counting all things loss in comparison—we can draw upon His joy, strength and fulfillment regardless of whether we find ourselves on the mountaintop or in the valley.
