Pressing Toward the Mark


Happy Wednesday Everyone! It’s the day affectionately known as “Hump Day”

I wanted to encourage you today to keeping going no matter what.

Philippians 3:14 says

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

Press means to move or cause to move into a position of contact with something by exerting continuous physical force.

I want to highlight the word continuous – to press is to continuously exert force until whatever you are pressing against moves into position. Now the aforementioned sentenced can be applied to your life everyday. Do you have something that is out of place in your life? What about that goal that you keep starting and stopping – I have a one-word response to you PRESS!

Now I have to say this – it takes less energy to stay in the press then to stop and start. This time when you dig in to press – stay in! Press until what is out of place is now into place.

There is a mark that we must get to according to Philippians 3:14 and you can only get to it by pressing in and staying in!
