“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”Philippians 3:14
The longer I walk with the Lord and grow in my relationship with Him, the more I see that I am being called far beyond the successes and triumphs of this world. Like Paul I am being called heavenward. And you are, too. Whether you’re a new or young believer or not, do you long to serve Him each day and each moment? In doing so you’ll find the surpassing joy of living for Christ.
For all our striving (even Paul says he pressed on towards his goal), the most amazing thing is that God has already accomplished our goal for us! We are becoming what He’s already made us: His children. He already has won for us in Christ a life lived for Him now and a place in heaven with Him one day.
Deepen your relationship with Jesus, and you’ll see that in the “race of life,” He is running for you and has won the crown for you!
