PHILIPPIANS 3:1-8: NO CONFIDENCE IN THE FLESH

THE third chapter of Philippians contains the portion of this Epistle in which, perhaps, one is hardest put to it to keep pace with the writer. Here he gives us one of his most remarkable expositions of the true Christian religion as the Holy Spirit shared it with him, and as he maintains it must essentially exist for all Christian up until Christ returns. He does this in a burst of thought and feeling expressed together, so that, if we are to take his meaning, the fire and the light must both alike do their work upon us; we must feel and see both at once.
