But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss because of Christ.
But, no, rather I also count all things to be loss because of the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them to be trash, that I might gain Christ
and be found in Him; not having my own righteousness of Law, but through the faith of Christ, having the righteousness of God on faith,
to know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, having been conformed to His death,
if somehow I may attain to a resurrection out of the dead.
Not that I already received or already have been perfected, but I press on, if I also may lay hold, inasmuch as I also was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
Brothers, I do not count myself to have laid hold, but one thing I do, forgetting the things behind, and stretching forward to those things before,
I press on after a mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
