You Can’t Drive Like That
OCTOBER 14, 2022 Daily Reading – Isa. 29-31 / Phil. 3
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Back when I was learning to drive, the instructor told me always check your mirrors. He added, only glance at them occasionally unless you are backing up. That makes good sense. You cannot drive forward and do a good job of it if you are staring at what is behind you.
Our Christian life is much like driving a car. Paul said we are to forget those things behind. This means not to dwell on them or move toward them. Occasionally we need to recall what we left behind, so we do not make the same mistakes twice. However, our life is to be in forward motion, not backward. You cannot move forward for the Lord living in the past.
WHAT WILL YOU DO:
Are you looking out the windshield of life toward your destination with Jesus, or in the mirrors at past mistakes?
