Bible: Philippians 3:10-16

3:10 My aim is to know him, 1  to experience the power of his resurrection, to share in his sufferings, 2  and to be like him in his death, 3:11 and so, somehow, 3  to attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Keep Going Forward

3:12 Not that I have already attained this – that is, I have not already been perfected – but I strive to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus also laid hold of me. 4  3:13 Brothers and sisters, 5  I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: 6  Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead, 3:14 with this goal in mind, 7  I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God 8  in Christ Jesus. 3:15 Therefore let those of us who are “perfectembrace this point of view. 9  If you think otherwise, God will reveal to you the error of your ways. 10  3:16 Nevertheless, let us live up to the standard 11  that we have already attained. 12
