March 16 Leave It Behind!

Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.


DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:

There are two days that can steal the joy from today. One is yesterday; the other is tomorrow.

Paul urges us in Philippians 3:13-14, “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

We are to lay the past behind—the guilt, the glory, the grief, and the grudges. Paul was one who was guilty, along with others, for the stoning of Stephen. He said he was the “chief of sinners.” (See 1 Timothy 1:15.) But Paul buried that guilt in the grave of God’s forgetfulness.

Maybe you’ve done something so horrible that you’re gripped with fear to think someone would find out what you’ve done. Have you repented? Then don’t be haunted by the ghost of guilt.

ACTION POINT:

Have you done something worse than being an accessory to the murder of one of the leaders of the New Testament Church? If Paul can be forgiven, my friend, you can be forgiven!
