What an incredible joy it had to have been for the Apostle Paul, a devoted Pharisee, to discover that he was righteous before God because of the very righteousness of Christ, not because of his own heritage, zeal or accomplishments. Because of the temptation to go back to trusting in the flesh, he persevered in that knowledge – forgetting what was behind and pressing on to the goal in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:1-14 (No Confidence in the Flesh)
John 15:1-5 (The Vine and the Branches)
