Philippians 3:12-16
12 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection! But I keep working toward that day when I will finally be all that Christ Jesus saved me for and wants me to be. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven. 15 I hope all of you who are mature Christians will agree on these things. If you disagree on some point, I believe God will make it plain to you. 16 But we must be sure to obey the truth we have learned already.
Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

Paul used perfection to mean mature or complete, not flawless in every detail.  Those who are mature should press on toward the goal of becoming like Christ in attitude, thought and action.  Christian maturity involves acting on the knowledge that you have already received.  Remember wisdom is applied knowledge and we can always make excuses that we have so much to learn.  But acting on or applying the knowledge you already have of the Word is what God wants you to do.  Paul instructs you to live up to what you already know and live out what you have already learned. Forget your past mistakes and do not look back.  It is difficult to move forward if you are constantly looking back.  Keep working toward to the day when you will be all that Christ knows you are. 

Have a God Day!
