Need Jesus? >>> Are you a Christian?

Daily Verse
July 5, 2005 Who Am I to Say?

“Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 3:12

Even while we press on, there are difficulties that lie ahead. Who are we to advise one another or think that we have all the answers? Perhaps it is better to keep quiet and out of sight, for in speaking you find yourself accountable to what you say. Who am I, a man of little experience, to comment on life’s struggles and the solutions to be found? I am just a man, but a man of God nonetheless.

I feel great inspiration with the words of Scripture that say I must “press on” to lay hold of Jesus Christ. He is my answer. He is our answer. Being married is teaching me more of how little I know and how much God knows. How much God loves and how little I do. How great and infinite is His love and how childish and weak mine is. But I press on nonetheless. I know who “laid hold” of me.

I know that with every breath I take, I am that much closer to the end and the end to this life. If I must go on in the body, then I must “press on” towards Christ. If we am to be good husbands and wives then we must “press on” towards Christ. Who am I to say? No one really, just a man saved by the grace of God. If I am to say anything, then I will say, “Jesus is the way!”
