Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.
What is the prize for which we are called of God? I believe it's to hear those words, "Well done though good and faithful servant enter into the joy of the Lord! We must forget those things (sins) of the past and march onward toward the Lord's calling. In forgetting we must "repent"(ask the Lord to forgive us and turn away from doing the sin again) of those sins and forgive those who have hurt us.(ones we have given offense to or taken offense from) As we are able to mature in this and have the mind set on the things of God, the prize will come more and more clear. We can not serve God and man. We must be about our Father's business.
