Philippians 3:3
Three Marks Of The New Nature

3 For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

Worship in the Spirit – a quietness of soul
Rejoicing in Christ Jesus – He has made us whole
No confidence in the flesh – it can only deceive
These are marks of reality in those who believe.

Worship in the Spirit – led when appropriate
Rejoicing in Christ Jesus – the One who did propitiate
No confidence in the flesh – death is its ultimate fate
These marks of the new nature we appreciate.

Worship in the Spirit – links our thoughts with others
Rejoicing in Christ Jesus – sharing new life with our brothers
No confidence in the flesh – it only our sin uncovers
These marks are obvious when we get together.

Worship in the Spirit – guided by God
Rejoicing in Christ Jesus – we truly love the Lord
No confidence in the flesh – learning through the Word
These are marks of the new nature and we are assured.

“Father in heaven: I have experienced these and find it to be true personally. I know this can only be a work of God in me. I am grateful to Thee for not allowing me to have been side-tracked by the pressures of dissatisfaction that have come upon me at times. Thanks for “keeping grace” in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.”
