One coin has two sides.  Paul's 'one thing' in Philippians 3 is like a coin.  It has two sides also.  One side is a perspective on your past and the other side is a perspective on your future.  Both of these perspectives from Paul can form the 'one coin' of your present that allows you to walk with Christ in your now, such that the life in you influences the world around you.  Such is the power of ONE THING!

Why am I here?  What should I do with my life?  You really can't answer the second question until you answer the first.  And to answer the first you need to be on the same page with God.  Your purpose in life should be the same as God's purpose for you.  Philippians 3 shows Paul's purpose in life and, more importantly, it shows us God's purpose for Paul's life.  Are you on the same page as God with your life?  Why are you here?
