The Goal

The goal I pursue is the prize of God’s upward call in Christ Jesus.  -Phil. 3:14

What is the goal of your life?  What are you pursuing?  What do you strive for?  What is your determination?

The pursuit of Christ is an ongoing pursuit from the day you become a Christian, until the day you die.  It is an action, something we do, by faith. 

When you wake up in the morning each day, what is the big idea?  What are you preoccupied with?

Did you know that being in love with and in the pursuit of Jesus, is a place that is available to you?  Did you know that it is available to you to have him walk with you and talk with you?  The way you get that is by pursuing him.

When we interact with each other as Christian brothers and sisters and when we interact with our own children as Christian parents, we want to always call them "upward".  We don't want to shame people or be dream killers, but call people upward in Christ. 

We then encourage one another up into Christ.  We are open to any and every dream that another person has because all things are really possible in Christ.  The upward call, the heavenward calling; the, "on earth as it is in heaven", modus operandi, is our way of life in Christ.
