We all have failures in the past that, if dwelt upon, would cripple us in the present and future. Paul boldly stated that he “forgot those things which were behind.” There was much for Paul to leave behind. As a persecutor of Christians he was responsible for their torture, economic ruin, imprisonment, and murder. This sermon discusses what Paul meant by “forget” and how we are to move forward. Today’s load is too heavy to carry without trying to carry yesterday’s load too. Yesterday’s grace was sufficient for yesterday’s challenges. We need fresh grace today to meet current needs.
