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
