ren, I count not myself to have
apprehended; but this one thing I
do. forgetting those things which
are behind, and reaching forth unto
those things which are before, I
press toward the mark for the
prize of the high calling of God in
Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as

sickness, and death by the power
of Spirit, as Jesus destroyed them”
