καταντάω katantaō

from 2596 and a derivative of 473; to meet against, i.e. arrive at (literally or figuratively): — attain, come.

Phi 3:9 – 11
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— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

The word attain means “to arrive at” which means it’s not something that was earned it is a destination where we arrive when we share in his death on the cross

Paul shared in his death burial and resurrection of our Lord. Which is what we do.

We have to live out who we are and not who we want to become. We have to die to ourselves. Completely not just parts.

In him, I have! There is a level of peace knowing that I don’t have to strive to become something I already am. This becomes a place of rest.

G-2663 Rest. the heavenly blessedness in which God dwells,
