Philippians 3:13-14 “…I focus on this one thing, forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
Forgetting the past. Those words are easily said, so hard to do. But, victory comes when we are able to set aside the distractions of the past, and live victorious in our future hope in the Lord.
Paul had a past filled with memories of anger, frustration, and even his past of wrongfully killing and imprisoning many people. He didn’t allow his present difficulties or his past mistakes to destroy his life or future in the Lord. He laid aside the past and reached for what lay ahead “The prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
