This is the first day of the rest of our lives. Having come before our Lord this morning in prayer, and according to his faithfulness to cleanse and forgive; having received forgiveness and cleansing, let us begin at the place where we are at this moment, forgetting those things which are behind and reach forward to those things which are before us. We can do nothing about that which has passed except to ask God to forgive us for our sins and shortcoming, but by God’s grace and enabling power, we can if we will,take that which we have now and “....Press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3: 14.
What is the prize of the the high calling of God? The prize of the high calling of God is: “...That I might know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death, if by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.” Philippians 3:10, 11. The prize of the high calling of God is our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
“ For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.” Philippians 3:20-21.
