Title︰Pressing On To the Goal
- 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.
- Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
- I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
- All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you.
- Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
- Join together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do.
- For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ.
- Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things.
- But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
- who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
