As we leave behind one year and step into the new, here is a powerful reminder from E. Glenn Hinson . . .
“God made us with rememberers—not with forgetters; so we have to remember to put things behind us. Hardly anyone would have grasped this point better than the Apostle Paul—zealot and persecutor of the church. ‘Brothers [and sisters],’ he told his beloved Philippians, ‘I do not consider myself to have arrived, but one thing I do, forgetting things behind and stretching forward toward those ahead, I race ahead toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus’ (Phil 3:13-14). Remember to forget ‘things behind.’ What are they? Things that never really mattered? Things you can’t do anything to rectify? Things that weigh you down and hold you back? How can you lay them aside? As Paul did, remembering and then ‘stretching forward toward those ahead” . . . toward the prize of God’s upward call.’ —E. Glenn Hinson
