Press On!

“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God

has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14


Of all the Israelites, perhaps no one tried harder to please God than Saul of Tarsus.

Every area of his life conformed strictly to the Law. No one could accuse this respected

Pharisee of lacking zeal. He was a man with a mission-a mission to please and serve

God.


But on the road to Damascus, Saul’s life changed entirely. From now on, he would no

longer try to please God himself. Instead, he would press on with the goal of knowing

Christ.

“I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing

Christ Jesus my Lord.” Philippians 3:8.


Saul (now called Paul) had a new mission-a mission that remained constant amid ever-changing circumstances.

It didn’t matter whether he was preaching to a crowd or sitting in a damp prison.

Paul now had one goal before which everything in his life bowed. Paul wanted to know

his Lord.


How about you? Is knowing Christ–fellowshipping, trusting, and depending on Him-the

goal toward which you’re striving? Ask God to help you press on to know Him today.


God, help me be like Paul, on a mission to continually know you more. In Jesus name, amen.
