Nevertheless, wherein we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. (Philippians 3:16)
“To every purpose, there is a time” (Ecclesiastes 8:6), an ancient sage opined. The Apostle Paul may have had this in mind when he wrote this letter to the church at Philippi. Terms such as “follow after,” “press toward the mark,” and “walk by the same rule,” punctuate the last half of Chapter Three. In contrast, Chapter Four opens with “stand fast.”
