Many of us live with regrets of bad behavior, shame because of past and present choices, and feeling defeated and discouraged. A friend of the family during my rebellious years asked, "How can Jesus love a girl like you?" I believed those words. God couldn't love a girl like me. I have too many sins, too many bad choices, and too much baggage. How could He love me?
We live in the tension of what we have been and what we want to be.
Paul urges us in Philippians to forget what is behind and strain for what is ahead. Our goal should be to say yes to Jesus and move forward in the direction of the goal. Our goal should be to know Christ more, to be more Christ-like, and to be all He has in mind for our lives.
What's holding you back? Have a goal in mind to glorify Jesus in all we say, do and are.
