Thus all those things are included in the category of the type of faith that finds favor with God. The former clause we regard as a general and comprehensive declaration, and this one as a more special result. That would have been the end. 3. cont. Sometimes it denotes rectitude or justice, as distinguished from benevolence. Philippians 3:9. . Union with Christ makes it possible for the Christian to be , to show himself such in actual behaviour. In Christ he received the reconciliation-merciful, and also righteous. The one he speaks of as belonging to the man, while he calls it at the same time the righteousness of the law; the other, he tells us, is from God, is obtained through faith, and rests upon faith in Christ. And the end is life everlasting. Этим требованием является праведность Христа, которую Бог вменяет каждому верующему (см. Philippians 3:9 And be found in him This is another end the apostle had in view, in counting all things loss and dung, and suffering the loss of all for Christ. The exact character of this which Paul prizes must be carefully noted. Forgiveness, too, as we already foresee, is but the foundation and beginning of a history in which we are called to go forward. "This poor man cried," and the Lord heard him. not pretending to be justified either by my own works or by the works of the Jewish law, but by that which proceedeth from faith in Christ, and by his merits. It is a subject on which much has been said. Philippians 3:9 Context. Paul shared with the Philippians the principle of being able to rejoice in the Lord – not in circumstances or in situations, but in the Lord who works all things together for good. The only way of entering on new relations with God, or ourselves becoming new men, is the way of faith. Rather it often begins with the fading away of such ideas when they were present before. The merit of Christ is His righteousness that God credits to the believer"s account when we place our trust in Him (cf. Bible Study Tools ... Philippians. the righteousness which is of God by faith. And this is true also of Christian religion. and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, To report dead links, typos, or html errors or suggestions about making these resources more useful use the convenient, Baker Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology, Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament, International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, But that which is through the faith of Christ -, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, But that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith, Не со своею праведностью, I. In earlier days Paul sought righteousness-an approved and, accepted standing with God-by the works of the law. As a *Roman *colony, itscitizens possessed the same rights and laws as those who lived in Italy. Verse 4. To our sense, indeed, things may seem to be most mutable. In contrast he now adds-, ἀλλὰ τὴν διὰ πίστεως χριστοῦ—“but that which is through the faith of Christ.” The apostle changes the preposition, for he intends to express a very different relation. For in Christ he has been provided with a righteousness that surpassed any righteousness that he himself had built up, a righteousness that was total and complete, the very righteousness of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 1:30; Romans 3:24-28). It asks great things from a great God. And this union is so real, that the apostle calls those who enjoy it a very portion of Christ. of faith as something very wonderful. An instructive parallel is Galatians 2:20, (see an important note in Green, Gram. The word "found" suggests that Paul might be looking to the final day, seeing that it is vain to be "in Christ" now, if one does not remain faithful and is found outside of Christ at death or when Jesus comes again (2 Timothy 2:11-13). And he knew in his own soul"s experience, that all who, in that dreadful day, were not found in Christ, would be consigned to the eternal pit of woe. We abide with God in the forgiveness of sins. On without the article see on Philippians 3:5supr. Biblical Commentary (Bible study) Philippians 1:3-11. 3:3 For we [Christians] are the true circumcision, who worship God in spirit {and} by the Spirit of God and exult {and} glory {and} pride ourselves in Jesus Christ, and put no confidence {or} dependence [on what we are] in the flesh {and} on outward privileges {and} physical advantages {and} external appearances--. They (and the apostle had been one of them) had a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. He saw by faith the words and works of the God- Prayer of Manasseh, and he beheld Deity stamped upon every thought, word, and action of that pure humanity with which it was in union, and thus investing them with a merit beyond all conception or expression of men or angels. It makes its way by incarnation and atonement and resurrection to a kingdom which, being first Christ’s, appointed to Him, is also His people’s, appointed to them. not having a righteousness of mine own, even that which is of the law. This abiding joy is fitting for the believer because it shows that we really do trust in a God whom we really believe is in control. If Paul has not considered himself to have taken hold of what he seeks, then we should not be surprised if there is still some gap between ourselves and the example of Christ. Those who wish to be found in Christ. Righteousness of faith, as the Apostle conceives it, is to be distinguished from personal righteousness, or goodness, as an attribute of human character, but yet is most closely connected with it. It is because this righteousness has faith for its ground, that faith becomes its instrument. Having referred to the means of this righteousness, he must also characterize its source-. This hypothetical ., which he calls his own, could only spring from complete conformity to the will of God as revealed in precepts and commands. , receiving his justification as a flee gift of divine grace. It comes from God, the one only Giver of all good things; it is obtained through faith as the instrument or means; and it is given on that faith - on condition, that is, of a living faith abiding in the soul. Is this unpractical? The Syriac version reads, "this one thing I know"; signifying that whatever he was ignorant of, and however imperfect his … Paul’s Christianity began thus: "Behold, he prayeth.". As Paul thought of the ground on which he once had stood, and of the standing granted to him now, in Him, it was with a "yea, doubtless"’ he declared that he counted all to be loss for the gain of Christ, in whom he was found, not having his own righteousness, which was of the law, but that which is by the faith of Christ. Read Introduction to Philippians “And be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith.” Some people suspect they have committed some terrible sin that precludes them from an eternal relationship with God. In either case the Apostle sees arising from one a relation which pertains to many, and which brings forth its results to them: on the one hand, sin and death; on the other, righteousness and life. See Hebrews 12:2. Here, now that the urgent necessity has passed, we have the stress laid simply on the opposition of the gift of God through Christ to the merit of the works of the Law; and faith occupies a less prominent, though not less indispensable, position. The battle is now virtually won, and it only needs to complete the victory. Romans 7:10; Galatians 2:17. If you inquire for its source, it is ἐκ θεοῦ, opposed to ἐκ νόμου. "God hath sent Him forth for a propitiation, through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, that He might be just, and the Justifier of him that believeth in Jesus." 127–129, 138–139; Häring, . Verse 7. Philippians 3:12-13 Commentary. "O God, thou art my God." The righteousness which is “through Jesus Christ,” “not” (as St. Paul says below, Philippians 3:9) “our own righteousness, which is of the Law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God,” is clearly the likeness of Christ, and therefore in itself an all-sufficient fruit. For Paul here makes a comparison between two kinds of righteousness. Besides, in such a case, as Meyer remarks, ἐν αὐτῷ would be superfluous. God had a plan for him. When we see how the apostle connects with this animated expression of his feelings “the resurrection of the dead,” we would not be so decided as are Meyer and De Wette, in denying Beza's supposition of a tacit relation to the day of judgment. See under Philippians 2:8. I. Pelag. Righteousness which is of God by faith - `which is from [ ek (Greek #1537)] God, (resting) upon [ epi (Greek #1909)] faith.' Hence we must carefully examine the several words made use of by Paul, for there is not one of them that is not very emphatic. If we are to experience God’s mercy or Christ’s kindness in any practical form, then that is to be so; and it is shorter to say so at once. All religion aims at fellowship with God; and in Christian religion that fellowship becomes real and authentic in Christ. The presupposition of possessing it is “to be found in Christ”. He shares in all that his Lord possesses. Such rhetoric in itself can be problematic because it seems as if Paul is erasing their differences by subjecting them to the same mind. It is not possible to take the one and leave the rest; for Christ is not divided. But when faith reaches to the things not seen, it learns another lesson. Own righteousness, which is of, [ ek (Greek #1537), from: such as I strove after from my own obeying]. Compare what Paul says in Romans 6:3; Galatians 3:27; 2 Corinthians 5:17and notes. In both cases a common relation is recognised, under which individuals are found existing; and in either case it traces up to the one-to Adam or to Christ. on StudyLight.org For, in this way, the meaning will be more complete, and the doctrine the more ample — that Paul renounced everything that he had, that he might recover them in Christ; and this corresponds better with the word gain, for it means that it was no trivial or ordinary gain, inasmuch as Christ contains everything in himself. . . Then he reverts to its origin emphatically- ἐκ θεοῦ-and he connects that origin with its basis in one general expression. It is a history of progress in true goodness. God's providence fitly prepared him for overthrowing legal justification. A very strong foundation has been laid for those who flee for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before them in the gospel. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,”. As he saw, and bowed, and trusted, he became conscious of a new access and nearness to God Himself; he passed into the fellowship of God’s dear Son; he found acceptance in the Beloved. The passage belongs to a large class in which righteousness is spoken of as accruing, through Christ, to those who are unrighteous, or whose own righteousness has proved unreliable. (Witham) --- St. Augustine expounds the sense thus: not that justice which is in God, or by which God is just, but that which is in man from God, and by his gifts. In the first place, that the righteousness of the law must be given up and renounced, that you may be righteous through faith; and secondly, that the righteousness of faith comes forth from God, and does not belong to the individual. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. This righteousness, divine in its origin, awful in its medium, and fraught with such results, was the essential element of Paul's religion, and the distinctive tenet of Paul's theology. Yet more-, μὴ ἔχων ἐμὴν δικαιοσύνην τὴν ἐκ νόμου—“not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law.” We would not connect this clause so closely with the preceding one as, like Tischendorf and Lachmann, not to place a comma between them. NLT No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead. It is not a righteousness which he can win by legal observances. He saw the Son of God in His life, death, and resurrection. Paul is writing about his goal of attaining the resurrection from the dead and having a righteousness that is in Christ alone. Verse 1. NIV Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. It follows that this righteousness, if it exists or becomes available for those who have sinned, includes the forgiveness of sins. That he should find himself in a relation to God so simple and so satisfying was wonderful; all the more, when it was contrasted with the condemnation belonging to him as a sinner. #3 “But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,” But the fact that he won’t arrive until he sees Christ does not preclude him from straining forward, committed to growing in Christ until his last breath. If you read it in the passive voice, an antithesis must be understood — thatPaul was lost before he was found in Christ, as a rich merchant is like one lost, so long as he has his vessel laden with riches; but when they have been thrown overboard, he is found? But now, in reference to his present enterprise, he has found, being Christ, acceptance at the beginning. Our prayer rises not merely out of the sense of weakness, but out of the consciousness of demerit. τὴν ἐκ θεοῦ δικαιοσύνην ἐπὶ τῇ πίστει-to wit, “the righteousness which is of God on faith.” His own righteousness was ἐκ νόμου, but this is ἐκ θεοῦ-having God for its origin, and it rests- ἐπὶ τῇ πίστει-upon faith. Philippians 4:8 Commentary. Its germ is imparted in believing, although the fruit of a life perfectly conformed to the Redeemer can here be only gradually developed. It should be the very golden core of our religion, III. And, secondly, the difference of relation expressed by the different prepositions, prevents tautology. But in Christian religion we are aware, as of strength which can remedy our weakness, so of forgiveness which can put away our sins. [Romans 5:17] At the same time it is not, on the other hand, an attribute or quality of the human mind, whether natural or imparted; for it is something "revealed." As the gospel is, the faith must be; for the gospel is the instrument by which faith is evoked, sustained, and guided. But bear this in mind, that a righteousness to be available before God must be a perfect righteousness. Philippians 4:6 Commentary. Luke described the city called Philippi as a *Roman ‘*colony’(Acts 16:12). Whatever opinion we may choose to entertain of this scheme, it ought not to be disputed that this, in general, is Paul’s conception of the matter. But there is an order in His gifts; and, for Paul, this gift is primary. пояснение к Рим. The law, therefore, pronounces the man to be righteous through works. Philippians 3:9(ESV) Verse Thoughts Paul was a Pharisee of the Pharisees, in other words he was exemplary in outwardly keeping the Law of Moses, as required by the self-righteous religious mind-set. Romans 8:30. He saw him by faith bearing his sins in his own body on the tree, and by his active and passive obedience working out a righteousness acceptable to God, and such as he and all the redeemed could stand in before the great white throne without spot or blemish. The one condition of understanding the Apostle’s language is to remember that he combines in his thinking two conceptions of , or perhaps we should rather say that his own experience has made vivid for him a two-sided conception of this relation. It is represented as arising for sinful men out of the redemption of Christ; which redemption is represented as in its own nature fitted to fructify into this result, as well as into other fruits which are due to it. The man who so meets with God, is therein agreed with God about his own sin: he feels God to be in the right and himself to be wholly in the wrong; he feels, in particular, God to be most sublimely and conclusively in the right in the holy pity of His forgiveness. It was a ‘gift of righteousness’ based on Christ’s obedience (Romans 5:17; Romans 5:19). It is part of what is divinely held out to us, as life or well-being in Christ. Ephesians 1:7. Righteousness—Legal and evangelical justification are put in sharp contrast. He had now been robed with the robe of righteousness and covered with the garments of salvation (Isaiah 61:10). Paul insists that he would like to see the Philippians being “of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind” (2:2). No longer. Philippians 3:9 and may be found (1SAPS) in Him, not having (PAPMSN) a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith ( NASB: Lockman) Greek: kai he ure tho ( 1SAPS) en auto, me echon ( PAPMSN) emen dikaiosunen ten ek nomou alla ten dia pisteos Ch ristou, ten ek th eou dikaiosunen epi te pistei. ""Faith" is the very opposite of human works; it is the reception of God"s work by those who acknowledge the futility of their own efforts to attain righteousness.". That self-righteousness in which Saul of Tarsus had been so confident he had found utterly vain; and renouncing all hope therefrom, he turned to Christ, receiving his justification as a flee gift of divine grace. It must be, for God is in it. The righteousness of faith being the relation in which, through Christ, he found himself standing to God, fixed at the same time his relation to all Christian benefits, including, as a principal element, conformity to the likeness of Christ. Now, it cannot be denied, that if there were any righteousness of works, it might with propriety be said to be ours. For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no … But what does such faith effect? When once he had been favored with a view of the righteousness of the Son of God, he wanted no other for time or eternity. One originates in the law, the other in God. This righteousness comes to us "through faith" in Christ, and it comes to us "on the basis of" (or "by," NIV) "faith" from God. Hence there are two things that are to be observed here. It gives an objective view of the apostle's condition. (Philippians 3:9.) In the last section, Paul called us to “rejoice in the Lord”. "And be found in him, not having my own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith. Commentary on Philippians 3:12-21 (Read Philippians 3:12-21) This simple dependence and earnestness of soul, were not mentioned as if the apostle had gained the prize, or were already made perfect in the Saviour's likeness. He is in prison­­­, but assures the Philippian Christians that his … Philippians 3:9 9 and be found in him, not having f a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but g that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— “Not having a righteousness of mine own”: “Not having a supposed right standing which depends on my doing what the law commands” (Wms). Yet the Jews, as St. Paul testifies (Romans 10:1-6), had gone about to establish such a righteousness for themselves. “Righteousness”: “A right relation to God” (Erdman p. 118). (See notes on, and note. It is the movement of one"s whole soul in confidence out toward Christ. The only way to find favor with God is to humbly submit, in obedient faith to the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23-26). A robust Highlander, accustomed to climb the hills, tried next, and even his limbs gave way, and he was in fact precipitated to the bottom. It was His faithfulness that made Him all sufficient as a satisfactory sacrifice (compare Hebrews 10:5-10). but that which is through faith in Christ. And so, if it be possible for Paul to fall from Christ, then also he must fall from the righteousness of faith. Our forgiveness is a free gift of God’s goodness; yet also, it is our participation with Christ, sent to us from the Father, in a wonderful relation which He has come to hold to sin and to righteousness. It is that which makes the believer one with Christ. But it must be said, in reply, that to speak of this righteousness of faith as unpractical is a strange mistake. (1) We want the past for purposes of humiliation. the righteousness which is of God by (on condition of) faith.—This verse is notable, as describing the true righteousness; first imperfectly, as coming “through faith of Jesus Christ,” a description which discloses to us only its means, and not its origin; next, completely, as “a righteousness coming from God on the sole condition of faith”—faith being here viewed not as the means, but as the condition, of receiving the divine gift (as in Acts 3:16). Theol., p. 64) points out, a proof of his close connexion with the Jewish consciousness. The fulness of blessing had not yet come into possession and experience. This was the righteousness from God to faith, in the strength of which he could call all things his own. In the very hour when he first believed for righteousness, he felt himself entering a kingdom of light, and love, and power, in which all things were possible; and ever after the same order of experience verified itself for him afresh. Therefore the full force of the words is ‘when faith is rightly used,’ which also may be the sense of ‘by faith.’, I may be found in him not having my justice, which is of the law; i.e. The view does not appear tenable. This righteousness- δικαιοσύνη-which the apostle aspired to possess, is the only ground of acceptance with God. His words are that he will have “taken hold of it” when he finally arrives. The righteousness which is of God by faith; see note to Romans 1:17. Apparently Christ Himself came into the inheritance which He holds for us, by an order of things which it was imperative on Him to regard, and by a history which He must fulfil. Winer, § 20, 2. "in Him," namely, standing in the merit of Christ rather than in his own merit. But then, in the next place, the forgiveness of sins itself is referred to the mediation of Christ, and the work accomplished in that mediation, as its known basis. Apart from objections drawn from theology or| morals or texts, they argue, for example, that it is all in the air, away from real experience. ., . “No longer counting on being saved by being good enough” (Tay). We meet God in the forgiveness of sins. The preposition might also be rendered ‘upon.’ And this more literal rendering perhaps brings out most nearly the sense which seems to be ‘on the condition of faith.’ But since He who bestows the faith is also God (cf. Philippians 4:18 - But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God. “And actually be in Him,” from the eschatological standpoint (see Viteau, Le Verbe, p. 192). “Even that which is of the law”: Paul had spent the first part of his life depending upon the flawless observance of the Law of Moses to make him right with God. He thus, in a general way, places man’s merit in opposition to Christ’s grace; for while the law brings works, faith presents man before God as naked, that he may be clothed with the righteousness of Christ. If, through Christ, such things as these arise for us, if, through Him, influences reach us that tend to such results, then those are the practical specimens which interpret to us a Saviour’s kindness. It is not derived from what man can do, as in observance of the law, but comes to men through their belief in the incarnation and sacrifice of Christ. ‘Through the faithfulness of Christ.’ Strictly speaking in Pauline literature pistis (faith, faithfulness) followed by a genitive always indicates the person whose pistis it is (compare e.g. It is all we have. We may call it a “forensic” word, for certainly there always lies behind it the idea of a standard appointed by God, a law, the expression of the Divine will. Paul visited Philippi again onhis third journey (Acts 20:1-6). By faith, or, upon faith, shows it to be God’s plan to bestow acceptance on the condition of faith in his Son. ὤν .— μὴ ἔχων, not having) The words, to suffer loss, to win, to be found, to have, are figurative. Philippians 3:9, Here are the two righteousnesses clearly laid down—in one or the other of which we must all stand before God—the righteousness which is of the law, and the righteousness which is of God by faith in Christ. is securely founded on faith in Christ ( .). I no longer count on my own righteousness through obeying the law; rather, I become righteous through faith in Christ. So the place of forgiveness in the Divine administration is vindicated and safeguarded; and while forgiveness comes to us as a gift of the Father’s compassionate heart, it is found to be true also that "Christ washed us from our sins in His own blood." To this objection we demur. instantaneously opposition to Pharisaic Judaism took the place of opposition to the Gospel. If they do not count it positively misleading, as some do, they yet regard it as unprofitable theory. To know Christ in these must be the true knowledge of Him.
