Paul contrasts the enemies of the cross with the life of the true believer, using his own life as a key illustration. He speaks of having jettisoned the worthless things of self-righteous religion for the preciousness of being found in Christ - a state of trusting in his righteousness alone and pursuing deep relational knowledge of Christ through power amidst sufferings, resulting in attaining to his ultimate goal to be experienced at the resurrection.
