Nibble of Bread : Philippians 3:13

June 13, 2012

Philippians 3:13

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,…

I used to be a big drinker. Not like a major alcoholic or nothing but I really enjoyed drinking it up with the boys. God has granted me the grace to not make this type of lifestyle my priority anymore ( not that having a few drinks is a sin, drunkenness is though). But what I notice now when I’m around friends and they are drinking is the stories they talk about. I used to be right there in the mix of those stories, reliving all those old stories and memories time and time again. Every time, the same group of guys drink and talk about the same things…over and over. Paul is talking about pulling away from this type of mindset. Rather than dwelling on how awesome that time was, or how great we used to be, or how much fun I had in college; Paul is saying: whats next for me Lord? When we serve Christ, and live for Him, everyday has the potential to be the greatest day of our lives. Lets be men that don’t dwell on the past, good or bad. But rather lets live for God, and look forward to the rich relationships and blessings He has in store for us!

    Praise be to the LORD that our pasts are forgotten. If God has forgotten and forgiven our past, we need to do the same and focus on the LORD and our future. We are sometimes to hard on ourselves and dwell on the past. We need to forget our past and reach for the LORD.
