During our earthly tenure, our endeavor is to strive toward closing the gap between our current or known character and our perfected heavenly character (as God sees us). The gap between the two should not grow farther apart or remain unchanged. With each passing day the gap should be closing. Paul stated that he had not yet reached that goal and he was not yet fully mature (perfected) but he was making every effort to take hold of the aspiration because he had been taken hold of by Christ Jesus. Paul strived to forget what was behind him and to reach forward to what was ahead. His pursued goal was the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:12-14).
