Can anyone please help me explain this verse? Especially the italicized lines. NIV says: Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. While The Message says: I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. I'm really stuck and need to figure this out. Thanks!
