Press On-Monday Motivation

 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14 esv

There are benefits in standing up for Christ. God has called His children to be holy; to stand out from the rest of the world. This will cause dissension between you and some close relatives and friends. People who used to be close will not be so close anymore. But as those called by God to stand up for righteousness, we can not let how other treat us affect our responsibility to the Lord.

Don’t focus on other people. Focus on the Lord. What seems so difficult now will reap a great gain in the future. Don’t let your focus on other people block you from receiving all that God has for you. The world treated Jesus bad and you are His follower (if you are a born again believer). Expect the road to be tough sometimes. But also expect Jesus to bless you and give you what you need! Be holy.
