But today Mr. Bilson will be addressing a different audience! It is to those who make wrongful assumptions about him! It is to those who impose their wrongful expectations and views on him. They see Mr. Bilson speeding down the single line but it is not to oblivion! It is to eternity! He doesn't want anyone or thing to hold him back, get in the way or even distract him! His mind is set, he has crossed the line and has made the final decision! Jesus, here I come! It is all or nothing again! Let's make it happen!
"Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. "Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. All of us who are mature should take such a view of things. And if on some point you think differently, that too God will make clear to you." (Phillipians 3:12-15)
