Dr. David Jeremiah, beloved Bible teacher and New York Times bestselling author, calls Christian believers to move FORWARD to the abundant life available in Christ.
One of the first things we learn as followers of Christ is that we can no longer boast about past virtuous deeds or achievements, or dwell on past sins or failures. When we get distracted by the past, we will be defeated in the present. Forward is rooted in Paul's words from Philippians 3:12-14:
Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (NKJV)
We should be willing and looking forward to moving forward. The Lord will make a way.
