“I continue my pursuit toward the goal, the prize of God’s upward calling…” –Philippians 3:14.
The ultimate reward is to receive eternal life with our Father in Heaven. This is the “high calling” to which Paul is referring in this verse. To “press on toward” means to exert deliberate and maximum effort for the purpose of reaching or attaining the goal. Just as a runner in a race strives for the finish line, so are we to strive for all God has planned for us.
