“That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead” (Philippians 3:10-11).
Not obtain, but attain. What is the difference? We shall all be raised in a moment in the twinkling of an eye at the last day. But not all shall be raised with Christ in a resurrection like His. Those who have loved the Lord will receive in themselves the resurrection like Christ and the others will be raise for condemnation. The Lord is at work. Is He at work in you?
Lord, help me to pay attention to the little things so that I may be guided by Your Word and walk according to Your will. Lead me, O Lord, in order that I may attain the resurrection You have prepared for me in Christ. Help me not waver as many in this world do, but to walk boldly in the truth of Your presence and purpose. Help me Lord through the difficulties of this age so that I may always stand firm in the faith You give.
Lord Jesus, You are the way and there is no other way beside You. You have been glorified through Your death and resurrection and have invited us to join You. Help me today to be raised up for good works so that I may do what is pleasing in the Father’s eyes. Help me now and always to humbly walk behind You and in Your example. Grant all that I need for this day is to do Your will. Amen.
