Read: Philippians 3
Big Idea: The elderly apostle Paul never seemed to slow down in his daily walk of faith. He guarded against becoming comfortable in the house of God. He knew well that Jesus warned “But he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matt 24:13). As godly as Paul was, as theologically trained, as ministry-experienced as he had become, the great apostle still sincerely believed he had much left to learn and do. “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended.” How was Paul able to live with such an outlook? “Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward…I press on.” Press on, Christian.
Philippians 3:12 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 3:13 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,
Philippians 3:14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
