Press Onward and Toward the Prize

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. 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.

In the post “Spirit Aflame”, thoughts were shared about a man possessed by demons who was doomed but with the help of Jesus was changed. Transformed to the point that he enthusiastically became a follower and joyfully told others about what Jesus had done in his life.

We can do the same as we find joy from our past, excitement for what’s to come about, and thankful for the path laid out. We can gain what the song Soul On Fire by Third Day points out to restore the joy, the wonder, the passion, and enthusiasm for each day.

    One of my all time favorite passages in the Bible that I myself reference often. Keep on keeping on, towards the prize. I can’t wait, and in this day in age we have got keep focused on Him. The world will do anything to try to get us to take our eyes off of Him. Thank you for your share, blessings in Him. Lisa
