What does it mean to you to live fully in Christ?
When I think of what it means to live fully in Christ, I think of Paul and immediately Philippians 3:14 comes to mind. Paul chose to live fully in Christ. He made a choice to forget what's behind, forget all the wrong things he did, shedding condemnation, ridding himself of any guilt and pressing towards the call of God in Christ. He made a decision to press forwards. He made a decision to let the past be the past. He was not going to be put off course by distractions. He was determined to stay focused. He was determined to put his eye on the ultimate goal.
I love the way Philippians 3:12-14 is written in the Message bible, "I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: by no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward - to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back."
Are you living fully in Christ?
Your answer may be in this simple question: What goal is your eye on?
Prayer: Lord, show us what goal our eyes are on. Rid us of any blindness. Make us aware of any distractions the enemy is throwing our way to get us off course. Let us intentionally throw off guilt and condemnation and receive Your forgiveness and Your grace. We want to live fully in Christ. Gently turn our attention to the ultimate goal which is You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Who am I? Galatians 2:20 does a great job of summing up who I am. My life is His, the One who loves me and gave Himself for me . In return, I want to be all He wants me to be and do all He wants me to do on this side of Heaven.
