"Relentless Pursuit" - Philippians 3:12-16

Imagine a horse, utterly, physically, stretched out, exerting maximum effort on the journey to the finish line! "So what", you might say?

In the next section of Philippians, Paul is illustrating to the church how he sees his past and future. Twice he uses a word that speaks of relentlessly pursuing something in order to grab it and hold onto it. The example is of a runner, or a horse, at full stride with every muscle stretching and pulling with maximal effort.

What is the secret to this kind of life? What is the goal Paul is striving for? There are some real nuggets in this section! You and I will consider where we are right now in our walk, how we should deal with our past, and how to think about the future.

Are your best days behind you? Do you talk more about how life used to be? Are you regretful about the the things you had before you were a Christian? Do you get jealous of the worldly accomplishments of people who are living for their own glory?

This next passage will be right on time for someone who is finding it difficult to make progress in the Christian life! If you want to know more, then....

View and See.....
