Press On Toward the Goal
Philippians 3:14 says “I press on to reach the end of the race [the goal] and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” (NLT2). Are you pressing on? Philippians 3:8-14 tells us how to press on and how to win the race as a WINNER. Will we do what it says to become a Godly Employee, Godly Neighbor, Godly Sibling, Godly Grandparent, Godly Parent, a Righteous Church, BE LIKE JESUS?
How Do We Get There?
Philippians 3:8-9 Don’t trust in our own righteousness, realize that at the end of the day, nothing good is in you without Christ.
Philippians 3:10-11 We must die to self completely so that we can rise up in new life, trusting in CHRIST ALONE.
Philippians 3: 12-13 We must forget the past and move forward-our eyes focused on JESUS ALONE
Philippians 3:14 Keep going till the end. You don’t quit in the middle of the race, you run to the end.
Listen-Don’t quit being all that God has for you to be. There is a great reward at the end. Actually MANY REWARDS-SOULS.
FYI-Some may be troubled by the phrase Righteous Church-It can sound like legalism. Think about it. Do you want to be part of an ungodly, unrighteous church? Righteousness is through Christ alone. Legalism is not righteousness, it is self-righteousness. A righteous church is a church that welcomes ALL, but has as its goal to reflect Christ’ Righteousness.
