Keep Your Eyes on the Prize


Phil 3:7-14 (KJV)
 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
 {8} Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss 
for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: 
for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, 
and do count them but dung, 
that I may win Christ, {9} And be found in him, 
not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law,
 but that which is through the faith of Christ, 
the righteousness which is of God by faith: 
{10} That I may know him, 
and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, 
being made conformable unto his death; 
{11} If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
 {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.
 

2 Cor 4:14-18 (KJV)
 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus
 shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. 
{15} For all things are for your sakes, 
that the abundant grace 
might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. 
{16} For which cause we faint not; 
but though our outward man perish, 
yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 
{17} For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, 
worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; 
{18} While we look not at the things which are seen, 
but at the things which are not seen: 
for the things which are seen are temporal; 
but the things which are not seen are eternal.
{5:1-2} For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, 
an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
 {2} For in this we groan, 
earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:

2 Tim 4:7-8 (KJV)
 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 
{8} Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness,
 which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day:
 and not to me only, 
but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Rev 3:20-22 (KJV)
 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: 
if any man hear my voice, and open the door,
 I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 
{21} To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, 
even as I also overcame, 
and am set down with my Father in his throne. 
{22} He that hath an ear, let him hear 
what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
