“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” (Philippians 3:12 NIV)
What has Christ taken hold of you for?
To limp along in compromise?
To go back to old dead destructive habits?
To hold onto the past?
He took hold of you to walk with Him.
To run the race set before you.
To go forward in new holy habits.
To look toward the future with hope and the assurance that whatever it holds, Jesus will walk with you there.
Press through the fear of failure.
Press through discouragement to grab hold of God’s courage.
Press through the temptation to quit now before you even get started.
Don’t give up and don’t go back.
Jesus Christ has taken hold of you for a reason, press through and find out what it is.
