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. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…
Arise from your slumber. It is time to move forward in the Spirit. Be passive no longer. Move toward the goal. Pursue Me with your love. Do you hear Me calling you to be more active in your faith walk? I am not beyond your reach. Pursue Me with desire, for I do not want a lukewarm Bride.
