“Not Just a Game”

April 9, 2017

 

Philippians 3: 12:  “I press on in order that I may lay hold of that for which I was also laid hold of by Christ Jesus.”  This term “lay hold of” is no passive, laid-back phrase.  It is the same term used several times in describing the Jew’s attempts to apprehend Jesus.  It denotes a great deal of intensity.  Jesus actually apprehended us, for the purpose that we, in turn, could apprehend something: His image, His likeness, His calling.  This is why we have Holy Week, to remind us of the seriousness of our life with God.
