Pressing on

Tomorrow’s sermon, “Salvation, Part 3: Continuing On,” focuses on sanctification—what the Holy Spirit does in our lives between the time we enter into a saving relationship with God through Christ and our death. Sanctification means salvation in the present tense—we are being saved. Our responsibility as Christians is to do what Paul does: “forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on towards the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13b-14)

With this in mind, I’m including this breathtakingly great performance of a Bob Dylan gospel song based on that scripture. This is from the Chicago Mass Choir, and it’s everything I love about black gospel. Enjoy!
