Thinking of Jesus, His suffering, my Determined Purpose

Standard

Şi să -L cunosc pe El şi puterea învierii Lui şi părtăşia suferinţelor Lui, şi să mă fac asemenea cu moartea Lui;ca să ajung cu orice chip, dacă voi putea, la învierea din morţi. (Filipeni 3:10-11 – Cornilescu RMNN)

For us non-Romanian speakers that is: [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope] that if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body].

Just meditating on that word today….
