Luke 16:16 (NKJV) “The law and the prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is PRESSING INTO it.” Matt. 11:12 (Amp) “And from the days of John the Baptist until the present time, the kingdom of heaven has endured violent assault, and violent men seize it by force (as a precious prize; a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought with most ardent zeal and intense exertion)". So who are the “violent men”? We are!!! These verses speak of an urgency and a passion in following after God and I believe this urgency is birthed in prayer. The apostle Paul also talked about "pressing in" in Philippians 3:12 and 14 - he tells us that he is pressing in to win the prize and he then encourages us to do the same thing. People who are seriously training for any kind of athletic event will give it all they've got to win the prize and that is how we need to be about pressing in to God. If we are going to make an impact on our society, our Christianity cannot be halfhearted.
