Pressing towards the mark

“I press towards the mark (goal) of the upward call of God.”  Phil. 3.14.

The meaning for the word for “mark”or “goal” is from the Greek word skopos, which is the root of the English term, “scope,” like the zoom-scope on a rifle used to hit the target – it is the “end-marker” of a foot-race; and (figuratively) the unique glorification of body, and of purpose and function the Lord awards to each believer at His return (cf. Phil 3:11,14).

Has today’s Church missed the mark?  Is it living up to its purpose, function, and calling of Christ?  How may the Church, as the Body of Christ, fulfill its calling to prepare a people for the Kingdom of God now and for the age to come?
