Philippians 1:12; Philippians 1:25; Philippians 3:12–16

The Advance of the Gospel

12 I want you to know, brothers,1 that what has happened to me has really xserved to advance the gospel,


25 qConvinced of this, rI know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your sprogress and tjoy in the faith,


Straining Toward the Goal

12 Not that I have already lobtained this or mam already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: nforgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for othe prize of the upward pcall of God in Christ Jesus. 15 Let those of us who are qmature think this way, and if in anything ryou think otherwise, sGod will reveal that also to you. 16 Only tlet us hold true to what we have attained.
