The Apostle Paul was resting in Jesus’ work not his own, which means he’s the recipient of the forgiveness of sin and right standing with God. This compelled Paul to run the race of the Christian life with steadfastness and passion; God had done a good work in Paul’s life (1:6) and Paul was moved to pursue Jesus all the more.
What does your Christian life look like? Are there areas where you’re running, jogging or walking towards Jesus? God wants us to pursue Jesus like a runner runs in a race pursuing a prize.
Scripture: Philippians 3:12-4:1
