 Think O-I-L: Opportunity, Impact, Legacy | KingdomNomics.comMemorize and Meditate

Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

We must constantly remind ourselves that we are in the process of dying to self so we can live for the Christ who died for us. As outlined in today’s verse, Christ has taken possession of us so we will not waste our time, talent, and treasure on perishable things and secular goals.

In order to reach ahead, we have to let the past go. We can’t redo those days. Our goal is to be conformed to Christ and his will.
