What Prize are You Competing For?

Nobody finishes a race while gazing at the starting line. Why not focus on the finish line?

So much spiritual error comes from constantly looking back to your starting point instead of looking at Christ for maturity and how you can finish the race for HIS prize and not the “prizes” of the earthly minded headed for destruction.

Don’t chase relevance and validation from the world, chase holiness and maturity.

Philippians 3
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you….

17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.

All spiritual error has a spiritual price, it just never tells you how high it is upfront… It just shows up and debits your account when you least expect it and can’t afford it.

Watch & Pray & Press towards Maturity.
