Everyone has a past. The good, the bad, and all the memories in between. As we take a drive down Memory Lane we can see the ways we have been marked by our families. Our identities. The things we were good at. Even the things we have failed at. It can be tempting to live on Memory Lane.
But Jesus calls us to press on.
The Bible says all of those things are garbage compared to the new life that is found in and marked by Jesus Christ. The things that defined us apart from Jesus. They are not even worth mentioning when compared to the goodness of knowing Him.
It’s time to forget the past. It’s time to press on.
