Prayer for Philippians 3:6

“as to zeal, persecuting the church; as to the righteousness that is in the law, blameless.”

Heavenly Father, I realise through Paul's vehement denouncement of legalism and religiosity, that fleshly works are unacceptable to You and that this confidence in the flesh is a denial of Christ's finished work on the cross. Thank You that faith in His finished work on Calvary is sufficient to pay the price for my sin. Help me not to put confidence in my own fleshly works but live by faith in the Son of Man who loves me and gave His life for me. Thank You that His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection is sufficient for salvation. Father there are many who have been taught that confidence in the flesh and works of the law are required for salvation. Open their eyes we pray and reveal the truth.. that Christ's work is sufficient - through time and into eternity. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
