Keep on keepin’ on . . .

“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.”     –    Philippians 3:12

 

I finished cardiac rehab last week (woo hoo!) As I was finishing they reassessed some of the markers they checked when I began – weight, flexibility, cardio-stamina, etc. It was encouraging to see progress, but also a reminder the improvement hopefully isn’t over. Physically, satisfaction leads to complacency and we often lose ground when we get that attitude.

 

You know, the same is true spiritually. When we get satisfied with where we are, or see a little progress, it is tempting to think we “have arrived” and get slack.

 

The Apostle Paul, who had accomplished so much, realized even he could not stop pressing forward in his Christian walk. The same is true for us. We need to keep our eyes on the goal, to be like Christ. Just as with physical training, there may be times when we slip, but get back up and press forward.

 

Thank God for the progress, and keep on keeping on until we finish this journey.
