“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” Phil 3:12
God has a plan for your life. The great goal of the Apostle Paul’s life was to take hold it – to definitely and fully grasp that for which Christ has definitely and fully taken hold of him.
When we seek to enter into what God has planned for us remember that we do so from within the grasp of Jesus. Christ’s hand of provision and protection surrounds you so that you can embark on the journey of life confident of His love.
The greatest goal of your life is to enter into that which Christ has in store for you…to live for anything less is, as Paul describes in v.8, rubbish.
Christ did not simply take hold of you to save you from hell but so that you could fulfil His purpose. He has a plan for your life; He has called you to give you a hope and a future beyond anything that you could achieve in your own strength.
What a thought – a life of blessing and purpose waiting for you to take hold of. This is a life worth living – seek it out, chase it down and grasp all that which Christ has in store for you!
