Scripture Text: Philippians 3:12-14
12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Climbing the Staircase to Spiritual Greatness
In a world of cutthroats and headhunters, Bill is an outstanding man. He's a spiritual man, and that's what makes him so great! He loves Jesus, and just like Bill, the attributes of spiritual greatness, such as
Righteousness (living above reproach),
Grace (exceeding graciousness and kindness),
Humility (greatness without the great hat size, big headedness),
Zeal (angelic passion for the lost),
Total intimacy with God (unending connection with the person of God),
Spiritual Anointing (continually and obviously gifted by the Spirit of God),
Confidence (uncommon faith in Jesus Christ),
Divine Love (unique ability to share the love of God)
These qualities are meant to define us. All of us want these qualities.
You are destined for spiritual greatness: ALL OF YOU, but you haven't yet obtained it
Some day (hopefully) you will show all these qualities.
Some day (hopefully) you will become all you're meant to be in Christ Jesus. But it won't happen while you're here on this earth these attributes are the things that make us great as well.
In the end, when we meet Jesus face to face, He will finish His work in us.
Revelation 21:5, "He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!"
Until this work of new creations is finished, we look up the stairway of Spiritual Greatness and climb toward Jesus.
While we live in these imperfect bodies, corrupted and stained by sin, while we war against the flesh we climb toward Spiritual Greatness. Every day, the Spirit of God refines us a little more. Every day, we make one step toward the Savior and become a little more refined than the day before, but it's a long climb.
I: TAKE A LOAD OFF
II: TAKE IT ONE STEP AT A TIME. (Spiritual growth takes time)
III: TAKE SOMEONE WITH YOU.
IV: TAKE THE CLIMB SERIOUSLY.
Will you allow Him to be the Priority in your Life???
