The Upward Call of God
At the foot of one of the Swiss Alps is a marker honoring a man who fell to his death while attempting to climb to the top. The marker gives his name and then this brief epitaph, “He died climbing.”
This should be the epitaph of every believer. We should die climbing and pressing on toward the goal of the upward call of God.
In today’s study, Paul exhorts believers to press on in climbing the upward path toward the prize of Christlikeness.
