In Spite of...

Just Press on.

Press on: to continue moving forward in a forceful, determined or steady way.

To me alot of the book of Philippians can be summed up in three words:


In Spite Of.


Even while under house arrest, when his next steps were uncertain, Paul pressed on.


In spite of his struggles, his chains, and his opposition, he pressed on.


Philippians 3:12-14
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.

Paul's eye was on the end-on the finish line and he made a conscious decision that he could endure whatever he had to in order to finish strong.


Paul's goal -- my goal -- is not to gain money, fame, love, material goods, comfort, entertainment or even peace.


Paul's goal -- my goal -- is to forcefully move forward, through the good and the bad times to an eternal life with Jesus.


So today.....In Spite of my:


Pain -- I will press on.

Anxiety -- I will press on.

Failures -- I will press on.

Weakness -- I will press on.

Hurt -- I will press on.

Anger -- I will press on.

Fear -- I will press on.

Sadness -- I will press on.

Disappointment -- I will press on.



Jesus is standing - waiting at the finish line - watching for you to finish strong.


So press on.
