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

We should always be striving towards the goal set before us, or as Paul exhorted the young pastor Timothy, “Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” (I Timothy 6:12) Here Paul was invoking the imagery of the Panhellenic Games (The Ancient Greek Olympic Games) with the prize being Salvation in its fullness as we await our glorification when our Lord removes the presence of sin permanently. Meanwhile, we are to persevere…firmly grasping our call and the plan & purpose God has laid out for us.
