For just as rain and snow fall from heaven and do not return there without saturating the earth and making it germinate and sprout,and providing seed to sow and food to eat,11 so My word that comes from My mouth (Isaiah 55:10-11).
Philippians 3:9Common English Bible (CEB)
9 and be found in him. In Christ I have a righteousness that is not my own and that does not come from the Law but rather from the faithfulness of Christ. It is the righteousness of God that is based on faith.
Philippians 3:9GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
9 and to have a relationship with him. This means that I didn’t receive God’s approval by obeying his laws. The opposite is true! I have God’s approval through faith in Christ. This is the approval that comes from God and is based on faith
Philippians 3:9New International Reader’s Version (NIRV)
9 I want to be joined to him. Being right with God does not come from my obeying the law. It comes because I believe in Christ. It comes from God because of faith.
Philippians 3:9The Message (MSG)
7-9 The very credentials these people are waving around as something special, I’m tearing up and throwing out with the trash—along with everything else I used to take credit for. And why? Because of Christ. Yes, all the things I once thought were so important are gone from my life. Compared to the high privilege of knowing Christ Jesus as my Master, firsthand, everything I once thought I had going for me is insignificant—dog dung. I’ve dumped it all in the trash so that I could embrace Christ and be embraced by him. I didn’t want some petty, inferior brand of righteousness that comes from keeping a list of rules when I could get the robust kind that comes from trusting Christ—God’srighteousness.
I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! Old things have passed away behold all things are become new!
