Journey to Finish

Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 3:13-14

 

 

Henry Moore, a famous English sculptor was interviewed when he turned 80 years old. 

 

He was asked, "Now that you are 80, you must know the secret of life.  What is it?"

 

Moore paused ever so slightly, and smiled before answering.

 

"The secret of life," he said, "is to have a task, something you do your entire life, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for your whole life. And the most important thing is: it must be something you cannot possibly do."

 

The rallying cry of the Apostle Paul's life was, "I press on toward the prize."

 

Paul was willing to undergo suffering because he knew he had a journey to finish and a task to complete for Jesus Christ.  

 

Like Paul, God has given you a journey you cannot possibly finish on your own. Take courage; He will strengthen you for the task! 

 

Press on!  A prize awaits you at the finish line!

 

Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
