Look not back on yesterday
So full of failure and regret;
Look ahead and seek God’s way–
All sin confessed you must forget.
– Dennis DeHaan –
“But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14
Focus on Pleasing Christ
As we come to the end of the year, we often look back with regret on things we did not accomplish or resolutions long forgotten. But sin is one thing we should never look back on with feelings of failure. If we have confessed our sins and asked God’s forgiveness, we only need to focus forward on the goal of pleasing Christ.
