Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Paul was determined to remain faithful to Christ through the trials and struggles because there is a heavenly prize to be won when Christ returns. God’s plan includes a reward for the faithful, one that is worth all of our commitment on earth. Paul urged us as believers to adopt the same attitude he had.
Philippians 3:20 “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Paul said, “I’m really a citizen of heaven. I just have a temporary address here on earth.”
You can keep going through all your trials, no matter what, when you remember you have just begun to live.
