1 Resolution to Keep - 1 goal

Every mall has a directory map showing where all of the various stores are located. It also pinpoints where you are currently located. Similarly, as we head into 2018 we need to know where we currently are and where we’re purposefully going (your GPS does the same thing).

As we study Philippians 3:12-14, the Apostle Paul reminds us that between the bookends of our justification (when we were connected in faith to Jesus through the waters of holy baptism) and our eventual glorification (when we die and go to heaven), there is always room for learning, growth, change, repentance and refining to become more like Jesus. This is called sanctification and it’s exhausting. We are always a spiritual “work in progress” on this side of heaven.

So instead of just coasting or drifting through 2018, what should be our one goal? How about resolutely declaring with the Apostle Paul: “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus" Philippians 3:14). Gratefully, the Holy Spirit empowers us to do this as we forget what is behind and strain toward what is ahead. May we give clear witness to our growth as devoted followers of Jesus Christ in the upcoming months.
