這不是說、我已經得著了、已經完全了．我乃是竭力追求、或者可以得著基督耶穌所以得著我的。〔所以得著我的或作所要我得的〕 弟兄們、我不是以為自己已經得著了．我只有一件事、就是忘記背後努力面前的、 向著標竿直跑、要得 神在基督耶穌裡從上面召我來得的獎賞。所以我們中間凡是完全人、總要存這樣的心．若在甚麼事上、存別樣的心、 神也必以此指示你們．
Not that I have already attained this– that is, I have not already been perfected– but I strive to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus also laid hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead, with this goal in mind, I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let those of us who are “perfect” embrace this point of view. If you think otherwise, God will reveal to you the error of your ways.
