Philippians 3:12 ” I press on to take hold of that which Christ Jesus took hold of me.”

Many years ago the Lord found me. I wasn’t looking for Him, neither was I naturally thinking anything about eternal life…but Jesus Christ took hold of me & supernaturally called me to Himself. In I Timothy 6:12, the Apostle Paul exhorts the young Pastor Timothy to, “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” In other words, take seriously the cost of your salvation to Christ and grasp hold in full assurance of what you possess by it. We may not be able yet to fully experience all the benefits of our redemption…but we have this hope and it needs to be rock solid. So take hold of Christ as He has taken hold of you… or as I Timothy 6:19 tells us, “Take hold of the life that is truly life.”
