MOVE FORWARD IN THE LORD!
I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).
As a Christian, you should always desire to move forward in the Lord. You should never be contented with your present state spiritually. God expects you to grow in every area of your life. You should not be static but be dynamic in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Of course, one of the basic characteristics of a living organism is constant growth in life. Therefore, it is the duty of every Christian to desire in life for all round growths in order to press toward the goal for the upward prize.
In fact for you to move forward and experience constant growth in the Lord, you need to desire studying the Word of God and meditating in it daily. The Word of God is very vital and essential for your physical and spiritual growth in the Lord. When you give room for the Rhema of God to grow in you, your life will be totally transformed and renewed daily. That is why the Bible says in 1 Peter 2:2, “As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.” It is indeed the pure and sincere milk of God’s Word that enables a Christian to experience both physical and spiritual growths in the Lord.
Anyone who wants to move forward in the Lord should learn to forget the past. You should never think of your past glory, but looking ahead of your greater glory in Christ Jesus. That is the reason why Apostle Paul said in Philippians 3:13, “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.” The ability to forget the past glory in life and focusing more on your future glory enhances one’s all round growths in order to obtain his upward prize in the Lord.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should desire to move forward in the Lord by constant meditation in God’s Word daily. Shalom!
Golden Text: Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me (Philippians 3:12).
