Stop Looking Backwards

Philippians 3:13-14 says, “Forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” It’s true, we can learn from our past. There have been times when I look back and say, “I don’t want to make that same mistake again!” But there comes a time when we have to stop looking backwards! It’s time to let go of our past guilt, failures, pain, and regrets. Satan loves to see Christian people get stuck, discouraged, and whallering in self pity!

I want to encourage you this morning to keep moving forward in your relationship with Jesus Christ! We have to take our eyes off of self and get focused on the One who loves us so much! Keep moving forward and don’t give up. Paul is tells us to forget what is behind us and to move on to what is ahead! Press on to the prize of knowing Jesus. Finish your race and finish well! Make that decision today, to live that victorious Christian life in Christ Jesus. More of Him and less of me. Let your light shine for all the world to see and live for His Glory.

I hope you have a great holiday and please be safe! God bless!
