Keep Doing Good

12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:12-14 NKJV

Part of the lyrics are I’m not what I wanna be. I’m not what I’m gonna be. Thank God I’m not what I was.

Where we want to be is closer to Jesus. We are not (right now while in this body) what we are going to be which is transformed into a new body. Yes, thank God we are not where we were before we got saved, sinking in sin and despair. Jesus saved us!

 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:8-10 NKJV
Pray with me please.

Father God,
What a great God that You are. You have always been there for us. You have great plans for us. Help us to discover every day what those plans are. Show us where we should go and who we should speak to. Give us the words that we need to show others how to get closer to You. Please give us words of life and words of strength, words of power and words of beauty. Thank You for saving us and giving us the power to walk in the way that You have planned for us. Help us to always help others whether in word or in deed. Draw us closer to You. We ask that our hearts be right in Your sight. May even our motives be right. Help us to have the time during the day and to remember with that time to meditate on Your word. There is nowhere else but in Your presence that we long to be. You are where our joy and strength stems from. With You we can do all things (Philippians 4:13). Thank You so much for everything. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
