Keep in Mind

“Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.” (Philippians 3:16, KJV)

Aim for Change
By the end of the lesson, we will BECOME familiar with Paul say about living as it relates to eternity with Jesus Christ; APPRECIATE that the journey of Christian living and a quest for something eternal are demanding experiences; and PLEDGE to stand firm in Jesus Christ. 

Focal Verses: Philippians 3:12-16
12 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. 

13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 
14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
15 All of us, then, who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you. 

16 Only let us live up to what we have already attained.
