Full Court Press (Phil 3:13-14) by Rick Foreman

27 Jun Full Court Press (Phil 3:13-14) by Rick Foreman

c5ea0099d8e0e24f258e811759f8dd33Forgetting 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. ~ Phil 3:13-14
Reflection:  As Christians, we’re to leave the past behind and to be fully alive and present.  And that is the message of Paul’s exhortation.  Words such as “straining” and “press” depict the intentional focus needed to disconnect from our past and to connect with Christ and our calling.  Much like sports, we can’t be content in playing a prevent defense, when God is calling for a full court press.  LIFE Runners are stepping into that full court press, where the future is not left to happenstance.  We stand on Philippians 4:13, knowing that we can do ALL things through Christ that gives us strength.  With Him, we are the change impacting our culture for pro-life and not death.
Challenge:  Are we engaging, connecting, influencing and walking in the love of Christ in a reactionary or proactive mode?  Are we simply working for a paycheck or stewarding our God-given gifts pursuing a God-ordained dream?  Are we going for broke by invading the darkness with the light and love of Jesus Christ?  LIFE Runners represent that “going for broke” tenacity to walk in love, while standing for justice, and influencing others for Christ.
