“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” (Phil. 3:13, 14).
“One thing” includes four simple pieces of advice:
- Forget what is behind – we cannot change our past, so receive grace from God and move on with Him
- Strain toward what is ahead – God has an amazing life ahead for you as you trust him and take steps of faith
- Press on toward the goal to win the prize – the prize is knowing Jesus!
- God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus – Let’s continue to look forward to heaven, where we will live eternally with Christ. Our life on this earth is only temporary.
