Sermons from New Covenant Community Church

Press In and Press On (Philippians 3:12-21)

Dick Beaumont, July 30, 2017
Part of the None series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

We may be well-established in our relationships with God, but we do not have enough. We have to realize how much more God has for us. In this sermon by Pastor Dick Beaumont, we see that as a follower of Jesus, just like running a race, fighting the urge to quit when things get hard, we have to continually press in and press on for more of what the Lord has for us.

Philippians 3:12-21

12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. 16 Only let us hold true to what we have attained.

17 Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. 18 For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things. 20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. (ESV)
