Press on Towards the Goad

Forget what lies behind...

Strain forward to what lies ahead...

Press on toward the goal...

For the prize... the upward call of God in Christ Jesus...

This scripture found in Philippians 3:13-14 tells us that we must STRAIN forward to obtain the prize.

It is not easy.  It is not pleasant.  It taking dying to self and it takes sacrifice.

Forgetting what lies behind is a choice.  A tough one.  To leave those things we must consciously move forward with purpose and intention.  It is only then, when we continue running, way after we are tired, after feeling that we must stop but don't,  that we gain strength and endurance to finish the race.
