Confidence In What?
though I myself have reasons for such confidence. If anyone else thinks he has reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee; as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for legalistic righteousness, faultless. – Philippians 3:4-6
We cannot put our confidence in the flesh. Our flesh cannot save us. In and of ourselves we are nothing. Only through Jesus are we anything. Paul could boast of all these things he had done, but none of them mattered when he came face-to-face with our Lord. Only Jesus matters.
