"Press Toward The Mark"

April 2006

How much time do you spend looking back on the events of your life? Someone once said that hindsight is 20/20. All of us have wished at sometime or the other that we would have had the benefit of seeing ahead in time to avoid the blunders in decisions we’ve made. Yet our past can hold for us great insight for the future if we will only learn from it. Many of our treasured memories and moments have brought us great joy as we have looked back on them. The key in living a successful Christian life is found in knowing which way to look. The Psalmist David said in Psalms 121:1-2, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord which made heaven and earth.“ David’s direction was turned toward the leading of the Lord in his life. Though we can find strength, encouragement and understanding in looking back, our focus must be turned ahead to God. Life at times can only be understood by looking backward, but it must be lived by looking forward. Philippians 3:13-14 exhorts us to forget the guilt of our past and “press toward the mark of the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” It is here, that we can then walk in victory each day as children of God. Always look up to the one who reaching down to touch those in need who will call upon His powerful name.

 

In Christ,
