Philippians 3:12-21 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own...
I think Paul's on to something when he says in Philippians 3:13 "But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead." It's pretty easy to get hung up on the past (which, by the way, we can't change). And when we do that, we can really hinder the work God has for us going forward.
So are you "straining forward to what lies ahead"? How can you best "press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus"? Tami W.
