Philippians 3:7

But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.
8Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ
9and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—
10that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,
11that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

12Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.
13Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,
14I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
15Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you.
16Only let us hold true to what we have attained.
