Onward and upward. ( Luke 9 v 62 )
It was budget time ,when the chancellor of the exchequer tells Parliament his
spending plans for the country.Summing up he said ,''we are looking forward, not
backward''. This reminds me of what the apostle Paul wrote ,' Forgetting what is
behind and straining toward what is ahead'. ( Philippians 3 v 13 )Life for the
Christian is about going forward, indeed life is about going forward.. I enjoy
watching football on the TV,and one thing no team can do is be satisfied with
yesterdays success. It is not that we do not take pleasure or totally forget our
yesterdays,no but we must not let the past imprison us. The challenge is forward
and upward ,pushing forward with all our might, towards our heavenly goal.
past successes,failures,disappointments,hurts,sins, must not hold us back.
Our Saviour say to all of us today follow me, let nothing distract us from
doing just that.
Onward and upward
