This week our studies continue the theme from Sunday - Now And Not Yet. Each day we look at another passage helping us focus our thoughts on what we have now from God and what will be fulfilled.
On Sunday and today we were looking at Philippians 3 and one person commented how 6 words seemed to stand out to them from the passage. "Christ Jesus took hold of me" Philippians 3:12
That made me think of this hymn sung by the Gettys.
