A race in 1954 is a good illustration of what Paul is talking about in Philippians 3:14. Take five minutes to focus on pressing on in your faith in Jesus without looking back and possibly missing the blessing of serving Him.
You might be wondering somewhat the same thing: Why should I keep on living in the faith? Or maybe even: Why do I still have to be on this earth? What we learn from Paul is this: the motivation to keep striving for Christ has no place for selfishness.
Scripture: Philippians 1:21-24.
