Confidence in...?

today's reading.
Philippians 3:1-11  Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you...

Where's our confidence? That's the issue Paul addresses in Philippians 3:1-11, and he's quick to point out that as followers of Christ, our confidence should be in Him and Him alone. The world and our human nature, however, tell us just the opposite. They tell us to be confident in ourselves and our abilities. There's a constant tension between the two and it's up to us to make the right choice as we start out each and every day.

So how do we do that? What do you do to stay focused on Christ so that you're not responding based on your own strength? What does "gaining Christ and being found in Him" (vs. 8-9) mean for you?Tami W.
