“Only let us hold true to what we have already attained and walk and order our lives by that.”
Philippians 3:16 (AMPC)
The preceding verses mention that we need to be pressing forward toward the goal – to win the prize. In Verse 16, it speaks of holding true to what we have already attained or learned in our Christian walk, and order our lives by that. Yes, we should have our eyes fixed on the goal – the heavenly prize, but in the meantime, while we’re striving toward what’s ahead, we should live in accordance to what we have already attained in God. We are to pattern our daily lives after Christ and seek to walk in His steps following His examples. Not neglecting what we’ve already learned – as if we can slack off a bit. For by doing so, we may end up going backwards and become stagnant.
As we walk with Christ, we need to keep the momentum moving forward. By walking and ordering our lives to what we have already attained we get a real grasp of the truths of God word. Refuse to be less than who God has recreated you to be in Christ, you are righteous, you are more than a conqueror, you are rich and more!
My declaration and confession: “I am not letting go of what I am already in Christ. I walk daily in that consciousness”.
Ignite Thought: In the absence of order, life becomes stagnant and retrogressive.
