I charge you to PRESS FORWARD TO THE MARK that is set in Jesus Christ. The Bible says:
“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:14
To PRESS means to run with determination. This world is a beehive of activities and everone rus one way or the other. Some are running on one spot and many more are running in circles. How are you running?
TO PRESS FORWARD is to run in a particular direction. Many people are PRESSING FORWARD in the direction preferred by false religion, society or self; they are running, not knowing what lies ahead or at the end of the race. However, false religion, society and men are prone to shifting the goal posts and direction over time, such that FORWARD today is BACKWARD tomorrow. So, I ask you, what is your MARK?
TO PRESS FORWARD TO THE MARK is to acknowledge that Jesus Christ is ALPHA and OMEGA and in Him is the ETERNAL MARK. The ultimate MARK or prize of the race and battles of this life is EVERLASTING LIFE not fame, power, money, etc. No matter how you run and what you acquire, the only prize that goes beyond the grave is the ‘PRIZE OF THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS”
I challenge you to PRESS FORWARD TOWARDS THE MARK IN JESUS CHRIST. Put away all your fears, step forward in faith to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and run with determination, the race set before you, amen
