Philippians 3,4

"I press on toward the goal for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."Philippians 3:14, NIV 

Paul had a goal: It was to be in heaven some day!

He knew that he didn't deserve heaven. He knew that he had been an awful sinner in the past. He knew that it would be hard. But, despite knowing all of this, he pressed on toward the goal.

Do you deserve heaven? Have you awful sins in your past? Do you think that salvation will be easy?

Do you... have a goal?

 

"For you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls."  I Peter 1:9, NIV
