I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me upward in Christ Jesus.
Goal: I press toward the goal- As he who was running a race did. The “goal” means properly the object set up at a distance at which one looks or aims, and hence the goal, or post which was set up at the end of a race-course, and which was to be reached in order that the prize might be won. Here it means that which is at the end of the Christian race - in heaven.
Prize: The prize of the Christian is the crown that is incorruptible in heaven.
By pressing on, you get the blessing.
