HELPS Word-studies

2210 zēmióō (from 2209 /zēmía, "loss") – to cause or experience loss (forfeiture), especially carrying a penalty (significant detriment). See 2209 (zēmia).

2210 /zēmióō ("experience loss") is pointedly used in Phil 3:8. Here Paul shares the irony of how loss brings gain. As a person grows in knowing Christ they willingly "lose" their "right" to be self-governing – to gain eternal significance in every scene of life by living in faith ("His inworked persuasion," 4102 /pístis, Phil 3:8,9). This eternal gain always follows, no matter how "menial" or "mundane" the faith-scene seems to be (cf. Mt 13:31,32,17:20).

[Heeding this lesson brings incalculable gain (1 Cor 2:9; 1 Jn 4:17) – and ignoring it results in tragic, eternal loss (1 Cor 3:15).]
