Determined Purpose

Philippians 3:10-11

Amplified Bible (AMP)

10 [For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [[a]which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]11 That if possible I may attain to the [[b]spiritual and moral] resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body].

We should strive for that all-consuming relationship (and we should desire it!) with Him, and though we don’t deserve the rewards, we will be rewarded with the wonders of His person (what a treasure!!) and the power of the Holy Spirit—and yes, the sufferings, too, which will help us to become more like our precious Savior, hallelujah!
