The Prize of the Upward Call
In Revelation 4 1, John says "I was caught up in the spirit into the throne room". There's an upward call and what matters is that one day Jesus Christ is going to come back and call us home, call us up.
Press on towards the goal so the end effect of our christian life is the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;
- Philippians 3:7-9 (NKJV)
