Intentional and Decisive

Philippians 3:13-14 I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” 

The intentional Christian is a person determined to know God better and move away from mediocrity. This person is decisive, with a determined priority of living by God’s priorities and not deterred by their past. They have allowed God’s grace deal with their past and not allow that past to control their future.

Being intentional and decisive is being “with God’. John Ortberg says, “It’s allowing God to make every moment of our lives glorious in His presence.


What kind of daily intentional steps are you taking today?
