If you believe the promises of God,
And of His only Son who spoke for Him,
By Grace will we be saved though we are flawed,
The blood of Christ alone atones the grim.
Then those of us whom Jesus Christ has called
Know well the crown of glory that awaits,
And all the things of earth no more than galled,
We keep our sight on Him and His estate.
Then let us hold the faith and move ahead,
To imitate the Savior’s life and love,
Remembering His blood for us was shed,
And all that we have now comes from above.
Press toward the mark: with Christ eternal life,
And be not so deterred through pain and strife.
14 I press toward the mark for the prize
of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded:
and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded,
God shall reveal even this unto you.
16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained,
let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
Philippians 3:14-16 KJV

Hebrews 12:2 Let us look to JESUS …. The AUTHOR and FINISHER of our faith, WHO looked toward the joy before HIM and is now seated at the Right Hand of our FATHER. Philippians 1:6 says that HE began a good work in us and will be faithful to complete it in us.
