ESPN has a realtively new feature called “#YouHadOneJob.” It focuses on people who had one task to do, but failed spectacularly doing it. It’s a light-hearted look at some sports bloopers.
In life we sometimes think we have a lot to do—go to school, do homework, shuttle the kids, pay the bills, etc. But the truth is, we really only have one primary task. That “job” is clarified in Philippians 3:13b-14, “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.”
This Sunday at Istrouma we’ll focus on how to pursue this prize of surpassing value. Let’s not fumble at the one priority that surpasses all others!
Turkey Bowl Sunday
“Press on for the Prize”
Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind . . . (3:13a).
. . . and straining forward to what lies ahead(3:13b).
I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (3:14).
