Manna For Today: Sunday, June 19, 2016
Philippians 3:12b – …but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.
Learning to press is a part of our Christian maturation. Most believers have many stories that include pressing to overcome any number of challenges life will offer us. Paul gives us insight to this growth process in the believer’s life by showing us what we press toward.
My press is to become what Christ intended me to become, which is more like Him. So no matter the circumstance, I find myself in my goal in that situation to be like Christ. Certainly Christ offers us an example and or instruction for what it means to be like Him in every detail of our lives.
Could there be an area in your life today that is in need of more Christ-likeness? Ask God to reveal that to you today and when He has, write down what you learn and share it with someone that may benefit from your discovery.
Peace and blessings!
Happy Father’s Day!
