N-Counter the Theme : PRESS ON

We are excited to introduce the spiritual theme for N-Counter 2016. Drawing from Philippians 3: 12-16, Press On points us toward spiritual maturity. For young men this calling is a high mark, a calling worthy of pursuit.

As men, we are called to disciple young men toward this mark and to pursue it together with them. N-Counter offers a great setting, perfect atmosphere, and awesome program for this process to take place!

Philippians 3: 12­-16 says "I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own ... and straining forward to what lies ahead I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let those of us who are mature think this way... only let us hold true to what we have attained." (ESV)

We press on toward something, a goal, a finish. From Paul, we know that is the exceeding worth of knowing Christ Jesus our Lord. Our life's journey is a high and heavenward calling for righteousness, yet none of us is expected to press on alone either. Christ has gone before, opening the way for us.
There are always some who are called to press on with us, older and younger, we are to be there to encourage one another. "I am lighting your torch, and we will press on together". We have the image of a hiking trail, with two guys trekking together, and maybe there are others farther in the background.
And there is the cross in the sky, a symbol of our Lord Jesus who gave Himself, dying and rising again for us. Following Jesus in the context of Christian brotherhood, we are reaching hard together, for the goal of greater maturity in His likeness!
