Perfection and humility (chapter 3)

Paul had not reached his goal of knowing Jesus Christ fully, but he was continuing to make it his own.  He was not yet there, but looking forward to being there.  He aimed at the heavenly call and the heavenly prize.  Paul explained that the Philippians were mature and of the same mind.  If they disagreed, it would have to come to them in a revelation.  For the time being, they should hold fast to what they had already attained together.
