About This Sermon:

Philippians 3:12- 4:1
Running with Purpose

To effectively run the race to which God has called us, we must:

1. Strain forward towards what lies ahead
1 Timothy 4:7
1 Corinthians 9:24…27
Colossians 3:1-2
Philippians 3:12

2. Forget what lies behind
Hebrews 12:1

How?
1. Renew our focus on the goal before us
2. Contemplate more the grace and mercy of God
a. Psalm 103:12
b. Hebrews 8:12

Forget 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.
