WFW The Prize
I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me.
Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward - to Jesus.
I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.
So let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision - you'll see it yet!
Now that we're on the right track, let's stay on it.
Stick with me, friends. Keep track of those you see running this same course, headed for this same goal. Philippians 3:12-17
None have attained the perfection we desire in Christ, but those who are His possession are continually being moved toward the goal through the power of Christ Jesus. We may stumble or falter along the way but don’t ever give up. Keep your focus and keep the prize before you, keep running forward letting each step lead you toward the promise.
Run for the Prize
Eternal life with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit;
Christ will change your weak, mortal body into a glorious body like His very own;
A citizen of the New Jerusalem;
The crown of Life;
You will sit with Christ on His throne;
Authority over all the nations;
Manna now hidden away in heaven;
A white stone engraved with a new name only known to you;
Fruit from the Tree of Life in the paradise of God;
You shall be a pillar in the Temple of God, and you will never have to leave it and Jesus will write on you the Name of God and His new Name; Unbroken fellowship with the Father and the Son. “I will be their God”
