Philippians – Pursuing the Mark

Philippians Word of Grace Studies Church

If, assuming it is true, in what manner I should attain unto the out resurrection, the one out from the dead. Not that I already have received it, nor already am in a state of having been made mature, but I pursue it, since also I should apprehend on the basis of that which also has apprehended me in the Christ Jesus. Brethren, I do not reckon to myself that I have apprehended it, but one thing, the things behind, on the one hand, I forget, on the other hand, those things in front I stretch towards and I pursue according to a mark on the basis of the prize of the above calling from God in Christ Jesus. Therefore as many as are mature, we should frame the mind in this way, and if anyone of you frames the mind differently, also this the God will reveal to you. Nevertheless, into that which we have arrived, to step by this rule. To frame the mind the same all of you become co-imitators of me, brethren. And all of you scope out the ones thusly walking just as all of you have our example. For many walk, of whom often I have spoken to you, but now also weeping I say, the enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is destruction, whose god is the belly and the glory in their shame, the ones framing their minds on earthly things.
