Philippians 3:14. with this goal in mind, I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

The goal Paul is referring to is the experiencing of God. With this goal in mind he strives toward it. This is God’s upward call for each of us. We attain it through our experiences with Jesus through His Holy Spirit. Paul tells us to forget what lays behind us and move forward. So many of us hang on to our past. We hang on to hurts, mistakes, goals in-attained and many other things. We have a hard time living in the now. Jesus told us in Matthew 6 31-34 to not worry about the tomorrows. Our question is are we willing to concentrate on this day, using it to push on to our goal of experiencing God in every way He brings to us so that we may really know Him and really become one in Him?
