I want to know Christ a and the power of his resurrection and the sharing of his sufferings by becoming like him in his death,
if somehow I may attain the resurrection from the dead.
Not that I have already obtained this or have already reached the goal; b but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.
