CROSSING THE LINE

Phil 3:12

 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved theses things or that I have already reached perfection, but I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus has first me.

I don’t think we ever reach the end of our journey in this life. Perhaps there is no tangible summit.

We will never achieve all that we see that needs to be completed.  However we must never stop trying to complete the task. We will falter and stumble and fail many times, but our text this morning reminds us that we press on looking to finish that to which our Lord has called us. We must finish with the same enthusiasm we had when we first started.

 

 

Lord Jesus

Let me never lose my desire to serve

To run in the race 

Alongside the ones who could lose

Give me the grace

To keep going 

Even if others no longer follow

When I stumble and fall

When I misread the signs

Teach me the way of the cross

Help me to walk the road of humility

Turn the weight and the baggage of the journey

From a cross into a crown

Give me the strength 

To carry the dispossessed 

To speak out against injustice

To believe that one day 

We will all cross the line

With shouts of Joy.
