Pressing On
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14

Pressing on toward the goal to win the prize. We all like prizes and pressing on to win that prize is what we do. We do not stop but we continue to press on to win and the ultimate calling is heavenward. Paul kept his focus on the heavenward road but he also kept one foot planted here. It was like he had one foot here grounded in Christ and one already in heaven.
The calling is heaven and the way to the destination is to keep pressing on. The movement is forward reconciling our steps with the Lord. The steps don’t become weary because we stay focused on the goal which is heaven. Building in heaven will keep us from straining after things which will not last. Pressing on means we have passion to stay in step with the Lord’s movements. We know that our faith is not stagnant for it is active participation with Jesus.
Only in Christ can we find what we need to make this movement forward. It is only in our love relationship with Jesus and in the enthusiasm released in our heart that we make our goal heaven. When we begin to see our future through these eyes the steps getting there are worth all our effort. Do not stop pressing on toward the future and simply let the rest go.
