Bible: Philippians 3:12-17

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. 1  3:13 Brothers and sisters, 2  I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: 3  Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead, 3:14 with this goal in mind, 4  I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God 5  in Christ Jesus. 3:15 Therefore let those of us who are “perfectembrace this point of view. 6  If you think otherwise, God will reveal to you the error of your ways. 7  3:16 Nevertheless, let us live up to the standard 8  that we have already attained. 9 

3:17 Be imitators of me, 10  brothers and sisters, 11  and watch carefully those who are living this way, just as you have us as an example.
