It is all Rubbish
all the meritorious works that Paul had counted on to earn God’s favor, and any that he might do in the present or future, are but loss.
The purpose of life in Christ is personal, intimate knowledge of Christ.

Let fire and the cross; let the crowds of wild beasts; let tearings, breakings, and dislocations of bones; let cutting off of members; let shatterings of the whole body; and let all the dreadful torments of the devil come upon me: only let me attain to Jesus Christ.
