“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death” (Philippians 3:10).
Paul was such an amazing man. He was a passionate man. He accomplished so much for Christ and the cause of Christ. He was an apostle, a missionary, a soul-winner, a discipler of men, a missions-team leader, a church-planter, a theologian, and responsible for writing a good portion of the New Testament. In spite of all of his accomplishments, Paul was a humble man and he found time to be a holy man, set apart from the corruption of this present world and set apart unto the Christ!
If you are looking for a role model, Paul might not be a bad place to start!
Probably no other single verse that Paul penned in Scripture better described his purpose for living, his hearts desire for his own life and ministry, and the spirit Paul desired to impart to those whom he had influence over than the words found in Philippians 3:10.

Yes, Paul was a passionate man. A man who passionately wanted to grow in his knowledge of and love for the Lord Jesus. Paul was definitely busier than you and me, but he would not allow his “busyness” keep him from cultivating a relationship with his Savior, his Lord, his King, and his Master.
Paul also desired to experience “the power of His resurrection, the fellowship of His sufferings,” and to be “made conformable unto His death.” Now, that’s what you call a worthy New Year’s Resolution. Looking for some goals for the New Year. Paul laid them out for us in Philippians 3:10.

Just reflecting on Paul’s heart!
