Philippians 3:13 - 14
"13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have [a]apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
This is a race! Yes, our Father in heaven has given us an allotted time to reach our goal. That goal is to do all that Christ called us to do.
So often we get caught up in our past mistakes, the things we did or didn’t do. If you’re running a race and look back, there’s the possibility of tripping over something in the way. So, let’s forget those things which are behind us and reach forward to fulfilling the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
