Let’s Press On

One of the significant issues that keeps believers in Christ from knowing the Lord better is their past. Many Christians focus their attention on their past. Failures of the past plague them with condemnation. Wrongs done to them in the past tempt them to self-pity, bitterness, and resentment. This often creates a need for “pay backs.” Past successes give false assurance that things must go well today. Past blessings distract them from seeking the Lord’s fresh work in their lives now. Paul gives us heavenly insight concerning how to deal with the past: “forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.” Things of the past need not dominate our present. God’s grace can cover past failures and pains. Today, we need to look forward to the next work of grace that He wants to bring forth as we walk on with Him.

God wants us to move forward, looking upward. Paul said, “I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” The goal is to get to know the Lord better. We are to press toward that goal, exerting all of the spiritual strength and energy that God’s grace supplies. This is our reply to God’s heavenly call to seek Him, to know Him. Along the way, we will partake of the prize that comes with that goal. The prize is every blessing that results from getting to know Him better. Let’s press on to know the Lord!
