Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 3:12-14
Everything that lives changes nothing ever stays the same. We can try to hold still, but everything around us will keep moving on, leaving us behind. No matter how bad, or how good, the past seemed to be, it is gone.
It’s time to move forward, keeping your eye on the prize. Get ready to train, to change your diet, to extend your love, to accept the smooth roads along with the challenges all along the way. With Christ in your life, what lay ahead is always better and worth the effort, with no looking back.
