Eyes On The Prize


1 Corinthians 9:24Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receives the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.                                                                     (We are all running in this race together, but where we end up in the end might be different from one another!  Only those who are choosing to run in the race to The Kingdom of Heaven will receive a prize!Jesus is the real reason we even run this race!   He is our ultimate love, and we want to be with him so much that we will sacrifice everything just to get to Him, and be with Him!   If Jesus was not at the end of this race; my life would have no purpose! )

Philippians 3:7But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.                                                                                                  (The things that you acquire in this life should never be more important than Jesus Christ!  You want to be living for Jesus with all of the excitement, and Joy that He has to offer you by being with Him now!   So you quickly make amends not wanting to be separated from Him!)

Philippians 3:13Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,                                                                                                    (We can not label ourselves, and others!  Nor can other people label us!  We are not to listen to other peoples opinions, or to assume anything!  Unless it matches up with the word of God!  We are to reach out to God, and let Him be our guide to live our life by!  Through His Holy Spirit! )

Philippians 3:14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.                                                                (Pray for the desires to have a high calling from God for within Christ Jesus His One and Only Begotten Son! Keep following Christ Jesus, for He is your prize that you are to receive on that faithful day! Knowing that He loves us all like no one else can!  Jesus loves us so much that He wants us to be with Him!  I want to be with Jesus for the rest of my life! Forever, and ever!  Amen  How about you?)
