But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
This passage, found in Philippians 3:13-14 is often far easier said than done. When considering the subject of joy, it’s often what lies in the past that steals our joy. Not because God is harboring ill will over past events or transgressions, but because we can’t let it go ourselves. This Sunday, as we continue our summer study in the book of Philippians, we’ll focus on Philippians 3:12-21. By “holding true” to our salvation, and forgetting what’s in the past, we can live in the joy found in Jesus Christ today!
