Pressing On Towards The Goal...
Pressing On ...

In his letter to the Philippians, The apostle Paul explains the proper attitude Christians ought to have on the process of sanctification...the gradual, lifelong path of becoming more and More Like Jesus.

Our place in eternity is secure from the moment we are born again, but it takes time to see our actions and heart attitudes change to be more like His.

Paul notes that he is not perfect, but encourages Christians to mimic his singular focus on pursuing Jesus.  The focus is on forward momentum, not prior mistakes. A person cannot move ahead if their thoughts and vision are always focused on the past.

Pau has a clear goal: being in heaven with the Lord. He looks forward to the ultimate reward for his faithful be with Christ for all eternity.

We live in a world that is increasingly hostile towards God and His people. The world constantly dangles in front of you all that it has to offer in opposition to the things of God.

From within, the flesh entices you to forsake Christ and gratify your sinful desires. The enemy hits you with temptation after temptation. The real test of your faith is, will you endure? Genuine faith in Christ perseveres to The Finish Line.

“Do not love the world
or the things in the world.
If anyone loves the world,
the love of the Father is not in him.

For all that is in the world...
the desires of the flesh,
the desires of the eyes 
and the pride of life, 
is not from the Father
but is from the world.

And the world is passing away
along with its desires,
but whoever does the will of God
abides forever.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭2:15-17

Because Eternity Matters A Lot...
And Forever is a long long long long time
