  Pressing On Towards The Mark Of God
As Shown To Us By Our Apostle Paul

The apostle Paul lays it out quite clear what you and I are supposed to do in our Christian lives if we are interested in obtaining the most excellent prize that the Lord Jesus Christ extends towards us.

Yes, Saul of Tarsus was the enemy of Jesus Christ, a persecutor of the Lord’s Body, and yet amazingly, God deemed it meet to appear to him on the road to Damascus to convert and recruit Saul into the Lord’s service. Have you ever asked yourself, as I have many times, was there not a better candidate for the job than this man who was throwing men and women in jail for the ‘crime’ of witnessing the Lord Jesus? The short answer is, no, there was not a better candidate, and your King James Bible tells you why.

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

Saul was many things, a lot of them bad, but much of them quite good, and believe it or not, his motive has right. He was set within himself to defend the Law of Moses from all enemies foreign or domestic, and he would do that even at the cost of his own life. Saul viewed Jesus and His followers as a threat to the Temple system, and acted according to Old Testament law. But when the risen Lord Jesus appeared to Saul on the Damascus road, Saul knew right away that while his motive may have been right, his method needed to immediately change. To his credit, when faced with the Truth, he instantly saw the error of his way, and asked the Lord what He would have him to do. Today I would like to bring you a message on how we are to follow in Paul’s steps, and press on toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
