What things were gains to me

1
What things were gains to me,
These I now count as loss.
Jesus has set me free
From what I was!
All of the things I had;
Everything, good or bad,
I count as refuse
That I may gain Christ!
  I won’t give up!
I will keep running until
I have attained
The goal of my calling!
I must press on!
I must pursue until
I lay hold of Him
Who laid hold of me!
2
Forget the things behind!
Stretch for the things before!
Press onward with this mind:
Always want more!
Seeking in Him to grow,
Increasingly to know
Him that I daily might
Be found in Christ.

Amen saints from all over the world. We love You Lord. Continue to press onward to Him in 2009. Pursue Christ, gain Christ, be found in Christ, magnify Christ. This is the way to experience Christ.

I like this song because it encourages you to continue on and reach toward the goal. There is always opportunities to pursue him. Likewise, we should not pursue worldly "gains" which are endless, useless, and without eternal value. This song reminds of the truly valuable treasure: Christ!
