Moving Forward?

Posted: 28th November 2012 by Sam McDonald in Topical

Only one way to move forward.

Over the last election season we heard a lot about moving forward. It seemed like every time you turned on the news you heard your favorite candidate telling us he is the one to move this country forward.

Forward to what? Forward to wealth, forward to prosperity, forward to getting more stuff? What? I believe if the two guys running for president really wanted you and I to move forward they would have quoted Php 3:13-14 not the worlds view of moving forward but Christ’s view of moving forward.

(Php 3:13)
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,

(Php 3:14)
I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

We should be forgetting the things of the past that bring us down and reaching forward to the prize of Jesus Christ. If you really want to move forward in your life, then quit reaching for the things of this world. Wealth prosperity and more stuff are small potato’s! Reach for the goal, the prize, reach for Jesus Christ and then you will truly be moving forward..
