Goals Again

In Philippians 3:14, Paul said, he pressed toward the mark. In 2 Timothy 4:7, Paul said, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” He pressed toward the mark and he finished his course. Something was laid out for the Apostle Paul that he was headed for and to which he arrived. We know that there are priorities. We are to seek first the kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33). We are to redeem the time (Ephesians 5:16). Certain things we can do are better than other things that we can do. You have to think about what you are going to do, evaluate what is most important, plan to do that, and then prepare to make sure it gets done. All this requires making goals, working in those things, putting it on the calendar. It also means leaving things out. We must abstain, which scripture says a lot about, even flee things. The will is a major component of sanctification. We’ve got to think about what we’re going to do and involve our will as it relates to getting those things done. Many principles apply, such as bringing glory to God, doing what is advantageous, attempting to edify, and thinking about what is a good testimony to unbelievers. There are many more, but you get the idea. This is our goal Sunday. Let’s do that.
