Forgetting what lies behind … I press on toward the goal … Philippians 3:13, 14
The Christian’s goal is to glorify God. As 2018 draws to a close we must forget those areas of our lives when we have not glorified God as we ought to have done, but rather press towards our goal to be more useful and pleasing to God. May our goals be to please Him; to delight in Him; to desire Him above all; and to know Him more intimately than ever before. Some things need to be renounced and others more diligently disciplined. It is not the pace we set at the beginning, but the race we maintain to the end. A crown awaits us and the Lord requires nothing less than our best as we journey through 2019.
May this coming year be one in which we all bring glory to our Lord and Saviour.
