We’ve made the choice to follow God, we start strong. The exuberance carries us through the initial phase of our growth in Christ. But what happens after the ‘honeymoon’ period, when things get tough? In this series we look at how the Bible encourages us to press in, and take hold of everything that God has for us in our lives:
‘Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus’ –Phil 3v12
With the encouragement from heaven through Jesus Christ we can ‘run the race’ through God's strength, and finish as we started, strong and active in our faith and walk.
So that we can say:
‘I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith…’ -2 Tim 4v7
