Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Philippians 3:1-16. This is a well-loved passage by Christians. Why?
  2. What connection is there between the warnings of verse 2 and Paul’s discussion of counting all things as loss?
  3. What does is mean to put confidence in the flesh? In what ways are you tempted to put confidence in the flesh?
  4. Why is knowing Christ Jesus far more valuable than anything else? What does the word “count” mean in verses 7 & 8? What’s involved in counting something as “rubbish”?
  5. What is Paul saying in verse 12-14? What’s the goal that we press onto? In what ways do you “press on”? 


Memory Verse of the Week:

Philippians 3:8 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. (ESV)
