Special Music: David Woodward singing “My Hope is in the Lord”
Message: Making A Difference (Part 4: Make the Most of Each Day)
Passage: Philippians 3:7-14
How can we make the most of the remainder of this year? Carpe diem – seize the day! Those in Christ should make the most of each day.
- 1) Put the past behind us.
- 2) Take the road that is before us.
- 3) Aim for that which is beyond us.
Put the past behind us. Let go of mistakes we’ve made, the sins we’ve committed. A “back then” mindset keeps us from focusing on today. Put the past where it belongs – in the past. Regardless of your past, the game is not over.
Take the road that is before us. It’s the 2nd half of your game. Press on toward the goal to win the prize. Ask yourself, “What can I do today to make the most of this day that will move me closer to Christ? That will be pleasing to God and bring Him glory?” Look at your day everyday.
Aim for that which is beyond us. Keep on reaching. God is calling you to stretch, to reach (Philippians 3:12-23). It may seem impossible, but keep reaching. Each and every day, dare to reach again. Every ounce of your effort is worth it. If you want your life to be everything God wants it to be, you keep reaching. Keep reaching for the high calling of the Lord Jesus.
