I was reading through Philippians this morning and a short little verse just jumped right out at me! Have you ever had that happen to you?
Philippians 3:16 says..."only let us live up to what we have already attained." I don't even know how many times I have read this verse and never really heard it's message...but YES! Let us live up to what we have already attained!!!!
You see...no matter what your past is, when you are forgiven you become a son/daughter of the Most High God...you should live up to that! The past is gone and you are now a brand new person....now live up to that! You are an heir with Jesus Christ...now live up to that! Your sins are gone and your name is in the Book of Life...now live up to that! You have an eternal mission to win souls for Christ....now live up to that!
Why do we let other people tell us differently? We walk around with a defeated attitude, awkwardly keeping our distance from our heavenly Father, making all our own decisions and trying to take care of everything under our own strength. STOP IT!!
Our Father delights in us. He longs to spend time with us......now we need to live up to that. He loves you! He loves me! And according to Philippians 3:16 we are told to live up to that....to live up to what we have already attained. You see, we have already attained eternal life in heaven, and it is up to us to live up to it!
So shout it from the rooftops and proclaim the greatness of our God! Make sure that you always live up to what you have already attained through the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
