Blessed are the POOR IN SPIRIT WHO REALISE THEIR NEED for GOD, JESUS CHRIST
Philippians 3:3 For we who worship by the Spirit of God are the ones who are truly circumcised. We rely on what Christ Jesus has done for us. We put no confidence in human effort… 因 為 真 受 割 禮 的 ， 乃 是 我 們 這 以 神 的 靈 敬 拜 、 在 基 督 耶 穌 裡 誇 口 、 不 靠 著 肉 體 的 Porque la circuncisión somos nosotros, los que por medio del Espíritu de Dios adoramos, nos enorgullecemos en Cristo Jesús y no ponemos nuestra confianza en esfuerzos humanos.
7 I once thought these things were valuable, but now I consider them worthless because of what Christ has done. 8 Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ 9 and become one with him. I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.
