For Which we Have Been Apprehended

The reason Paul said (Phil.3:12), “that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus”, is because, at every opportunity, Holy Spirit is pulling us forward (v.13) in anticipation of grasping the fullness for which we have been “apprehended.” That word “apprehended” is a wonderful word which means: to possess; to take eagerly, comprehend, find, perceive (Strong); to take possession of – in a good sense, of Christ by His holy power and influence laying hold of the human mind and will, in order to prompt and govern it (Thayer).  (Jn.6:44, MEV)  “No one can come to Me unless the Father who has sent Me draws him.” We are praying you discover daily that you are being apprehended and grasping the fullness of God’s purpose.
