“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, …

“My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “LORD I am coming.” Psalm 27:8 My Pastor’s message Sunday was really good.
