Summary: 4 Steps to reach your full potential in Christ based on Philippians 3:12-14

Reaching for the Goal

Philippians 3: 12-14

12 Not that I have already attained this -- that is, I have not already been perfected-- but I strive to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus also laid hold of me.

13Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead,

14 with this goal in mind, I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
