Interpretation: Paul recognizes that he has not yet obtained the resurrection of the dead, nor has he been perfected, but he strives towards it because of the fact that he has been chosen to be part of God's family. He chooses to focus on what lies ahead rather than on what lies behind. In doing so he is pressing on towards the goal in order to receive the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Paul urges Christians to think in this way also; and if they don't then God will reveal it to them. We should hold onto what we already have. Application: (i) Following Paul's example, actively pressing on and striving to be more like Jesus
