“It’s not that I have already attained this ideal or reached this goal or have already become perfect. But I keep pressing on [pursuing it], hoping somehow to grasp it just as I have been embraced by the Messiah Jesus, and made His own.” – Philippians 3:12
Too many believers today have settled for a mediocre form of Christianity – a substandard version of the real thing, if you will. When our attitude becomes, “I’m comfortable where I’m at right now. It is good enough to get me into heaven, therefore, that’s all I’m interested in”, be careful! The apostle Paul warned, “Therefore, whoever thinks he is standing firm should watch out so he doesn’t fall into sin.” – 1 Corinthians 10:12.
There is so much more that God has for us
No matter how many years we’ve walked with Christ, and how much progress we’ve made spiritually, there is always more. For God has purposed for us “superabundantly above all we dare ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20).
Don’t settle for anything less than the best God has for you in your spiritual growth and the things in this life. Keep pressing forward, keep believing for more. Your best days are not behind you – they are ahead of you. Keep achieving new heights in your relationship with Jesus and your understanding of God the Father. Let your daily prayer be, “LORD, help me to always aim at the heights of Christian experience!”
– Luis Yosefus
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for my salvation and the good work you’re doing in me. Help me to keep pressing forward and fulfilling your perfect will and purpose for my life. Keep me always aiming for new heights in my Christian experience and accomplishments. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
