New Life In Christ

[8] Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing 
worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered 
the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I 
may gain Christ [9] and be found in him, not having a righteousness 
of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith 
in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—
[10] that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and 
may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 
[11] that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection 
from the dead.  Not having a righteousness of his own he put his
faith in Christ giving him righteousness.  Putting your Faith in
Christ your giving a righteousness the Father will not despise.
If you trust Christ he will give you his righteousness.  You will be
blameless, and Holy Spirit will enter you help you live holy life.
(Philippians 3:8-11 ESV)

Paul counts his previous life as garbage.  Knowing the Christ was so much 
better.  Putting his faith in Christ he gave him righteousness that he did not
deserve. That is grace giving something for nothing.  Faith in Christ give us 
a righteousness that Father will not despise.  If you put your trust in Christ 
he will give you his righteousness.  And Holy Spirit will enter you help you live
a holy life.
