Today I will leave the past behind, with its triumphs and failures, and embrace the full life I can have only in Christ. The past is what it is. What I do now is what counts.
We can’t dwell on the past—celebrating spiritual victories or mourning defeats. We must press on with the mindset that there is always more to be learned, submitted, expressed, and experienced in Christ.
NASB Charles F Stanley Life Principles Bible Notes
My brothers, I do not consider myself to have fully grasped it even now. But I do concentrate on this: I leave the past behind and with hands outstretched to whatever lies ahead I go straight for the goal—my reward the honour of being called by God in Christ.
Today I will go to God’s altar because that is what is important now.
