I’m On My Way

Philippians 3:12-21 (MSG)
12 "I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me.
13 "Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward - to Jesus.
14 "I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.
15 "So let's keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision - you'll see it yet!
16 "Now that we're on the right track, let's stay on it.
17 "Stick with me, friends. Keep track of those you see running this same course, headed for this same goal.
18 "There are many out there taking other paths, choosing other goals, and trying to get you to go along with them. I've warned you of them many times; sadly, I'm having to do it again. All they want is easy street. They hate Christ's Cross.
19 "But easy street is a dead-end street. Those who live there make their bellies their gods; belches are their praise; all they can think of is their appetites.
20 "But there's far more to life for us. We're citizens of high heaven! We're waiting the arrival of the Savior, the Master, Jesus Christ,
21 "who will transform our earthy bodies into glorious bodies like his own. He'll make us beautiful and whole with the same powerful skill by which he is putting everything as it should be, under and around him."
This scripture is so good, that I could not find a place where I could just cut it off. I love God's Word, don’t you? We are leaving early Friday morning for St. Louis, Missouri to attend our annual Fourth of July outreach. As of now, we have fifty-five volunteers on the list to help us reach the lost and hurting people of the city. We covet your prayers as we approach the day. I’m on my way! Praise God
We come to You, Father, in the name of Jesus. As we follow You into this area for this event, we cover everyone with the blood of Jesus Christ. We ask for sensitive hearts to hear what the Holy Spirit is speaking and open eyes to see the divine appointments You have for us. We pray for unity over the team and peace to surround us. We thank You for the lives that will be transformed. In Jesus's name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
