Press Forward

Key Verse

“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14).

Text — Philippians 3:12-16


A story is told of a man who was called to play the piano at a large gathering. He played so well that everyone gave him a round of thunderous applause. As he was basking in the adulation, someone else came up from the rear, walked down and took over the piano. After the second man had finished his piece on the piano, everyone was left agape. They gave him a standing ovation. The first man was astounded, as he was compelled to ask for the name of the maestro. The second simply said, “I am what you could have become.”

Success is meant to build more successes. There is always room for improvement and growth. Just as we must not be screwed to past failures, we must equally not be self-satisfied and be stuck on past successes. We must be eager to turn over to new pages and write new deeds of exploits, through God’s grace.  Paul did not think he had reached his apex. God does not want us to stay still like stagnant water. He wants us to surge forward and gain more grounds.


Build more successes


Don’t go through life, grow through life.

Prayer for today

Lord, lead me on to higher ground.
