Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 3:14

_ _ high calling — literally, “the calling that is above” (Galatians 4:26; Colossians 3:1): “the heavenly calling” (Hebrews 3:1). “The prize” is “the crown of righteousness” (1 Corinthians 9:24; 2 Timothy 4:8). Revelation 2:10, “crown of life.” 1 Peter 5:4, “a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” “The high,” or “heavenly calling,” is not restricted, as Alford thinks, to Paul’s own calling as an apostle by the summons of God from heaven; but the common calling of all Christians to salvation in Christ, which coming from heaven invites us to heaven, whither accordingly our minds ought to be uplifted.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 3:9-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 3:14

Forgetting the things that are behind — Even that part of the race which is already run. And reaching forth unto — Literally, stretched out over the things that are before — Pursuing with the whole bent and vigour of my soul, perfect holiness and eternal glory. In Christ Jesus — The author and finisher of every good thing.
