As Christians, we should pursue the things of God and strive for Christ. In this word, you will hear what the scriptures say about Pursuing & Striving in the Chrisitan life.
Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation
Ecclesiastes 4:16 “There is] no end of all the people, of all that stood before them; those however that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and a striving after the wind.”
Philippians 3:9-14 “and that I may be found in him, not having my righteousness, which [would be] on the principle of law, but that which is by faith of Christ, the righteousness which [is] of God through faith, to know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being conformed to his death, if any way I arrive at the resurrection from among [the] dead. Not that I have already obtained [the prize], or am already perfected; but I pursue, if also I may get possession [of it], seeing that also I have been taken possession of by Christ [Jesus]. Brethren, *I* do not count to have got possession myself; but one thing—forgetting the things behind, and stretching out to the things before I pursue, [looking] towards [the] goal, for the prize of the calling on high of God in Christ Jesus.”
2 Timothy 2:22 “ But youthful lusts flee, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, with those that call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.”
