Eyes on the Goal

Philippians 3:12-16 – 12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. 16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.

It is very easy to get distracted in life — our schedules, our phones, the TV, etc. Yet, if we are to be “successful” as Christians, we must remember to stayed focused and not allow ourselves to get distracted. We must live our lives paying attention to all that is around us, but not allowing what we see to move us away from our goal; a relationship with Jesus. That will require work, that will require effort, but in the end, we will be blessed with eternity in Heaven. Keep your eyes on the goal, keep your eyes on God.

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
