Looking and Moving Forward
One of the most dangerous days in the life of a Christian, a church, or any other ministry is the day when, on this side of heaven, they determine that they have “made it”—that they have reached their goal. If there was a New Testament saint who might have claimed to have done so, it would surely have been the apostle Paul. But Paul writes, “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. 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” (Philippines 3:12-14, ESV).
Brothers and sisters in Christ, let’s not dwell on the past, focus our eyes on the opportunities before us, and “press on” to Jesus.
