Press Toward Your Goal in Christ
In Philippians 3:13-14 we learn Apostle Paul continues to press on towards his goal of a high calling in Christ. He does this by forgetting the past and looking at the future. You have also read the words of Jesus in Luke 9, "No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God." Where are we going with this? That's actually what you need to ask yourself. Like a track star, if you are going to run a race, YOU must NEVER stop short of the end, but press forward as fast as YOU can. In your front view you should have heaven - the Kingdom of God. You are redeemed, justified, and held acceptable. Leave the past in the past and press forward. That being said, you have to learn to acknowledge you have Jesus' power to press through your situations. Christ has called you, therefore it is his will that you run the race & BE EQUIPPED. GLORY TO GOD!
