Pursuing toward the goal—Christ
Message given by Rex Beck on July 25, 2021
12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
The eternal Christ
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The Incarnated Christ
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Christ as a genuine human being
And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus
