Forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
The other day I was reading about a man who visited prisoners in jail. Many of these men looked back on their crimes with regret, anger, shame and sadness.
The Bible is full of such people – Moses was a murderer, David committed adultery, Peter abandoned Jesus in His hour of need and Paul persecuted Christians.
This passage tells us there is a way back through Christ.
