Read Philippians 3
- For Paul, life could be divided into “before Christ” and “after Christ.” Are there elements of Paul’s conversion story in your own faith journey?
- Paul was a very religious person who encountered the Risen Christ. Discuss “religion” in contrast with personal faith in Christ.
- Paul was fully aware of his past yet could write “forgetting what lies behind.” What do you think he’s getting at here?
- Paul lived life fully “in the present” yet very mindful of “what was to come.” Does this resonate with your faith experience? Why, why not?
