“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.”
When we truly believe that we will be rewarded for every sacrifice we make in this lifetime, we will live differently. Rather than pursuing wealth or ease or glory –rather than building our own empire –we will readily fix our eyes on Jesus, and run the race marked out for us with a singular focus and perseverance – to be instruments for the Glory of our King!
God Bless You
