The Disruptive Power of Purpose

BOFA Podcast (06/16/2019)

Philippians 3:12-16

Pressing Toward the Goal

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.  15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. 16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.  NKJV

“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14

BIG IDEA: My decision today repositions me to access and experience the disruptive power of purpose!!

Goal: Responding to the ‘call’ that’s ‘calling’ me!!

Paul, like Jesus had a sense of urgency—an attitude of walking in the season of now! Not a frantic pace without a purpose, but a focused diligence in pursuit of God’s Kingdom Agenda!

Þ A commitment to action beyond the superficial that calls for a higher level of passion, power and courage!

“I press…the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
