Let’s Win the Race (Philippians 3:12–16): Part 2

Thank you Pastor Joe for a great message on winning the Race by following God’s guidelines…

If we don’t Aim we don’t Win!

Christian Blessings and Love from both of us – Anne.

Joe Quatrone, Jr.

Phil 3.14All of us want to be “winning Christians” and fulfill the purposes for which we have been saved. In this passage, we find there are five essentials for winning the race and one day receiving the reward that is promised. In Part 1, we saw the first two essentials. Now, we will look at the last three.

Direction (3:13c)

Forgetting what lies behind and straining toward what lies ahead.

The unsaved person is controlled by the past, but the Christian running the race looks toward the future. Imagine what would happen on the race course if the charioteers (or runners) started looking behind them! It is bad enough for a plowman to look back (Lk. 9:62), but for a charioteer to do so means a possible collision and serious injury.

    Thanks Anne for re-blogging Pastor Joe’s message on Phil 3 he made some really good points.



    • Yes Love, I also felt this was a very good message of Pastor Joe’s and you made a very good point too on your comment to him, our pasts sins can tie us up in chains but as we know, God tells us when we have heart repentance, He takes our sins as far away from us as the east is to the west, Believing in Jesus is shown by our turning from evil and following His guidelines, choosing to do good by The Holy Spirit’s empowering, setting us free to put our flesh to death and aiming to be perfected in Love so we no longer sin.

      Christian Love Always dear – Anne
