Brethren, I count not myself to have
apprehended: but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things which are
behind, and reaching forth unto
those things which are before, I
press toward the mark for the prize of
the high calling of God in Christ

|If we had known him personally before his conversion, the Apostle Paul would have been the last person
we would have expected to come to Christ. He hated Christians more than anything and was even
present when a Christian was stoned to death. While on his way to Damascus to persecute more
Christians, he instead had an unexpected encounter that changed his life forever. That encounter was
with Jesus! Instantly he realized that Jesus was exactly who He claimed to be, the Son of God. Up to
this point Paul considered himself an enemy of Christ, and had tried his best to eradicate Christianity
From our perspective it would seem that God should have taken him out right there on the spot, but this
is another example of how different our thoughts and ways are from God's. He not only spared his life,
but he forgave him of his past and used him as the greatest missionary ever. He also went on to write
the majority of the New Testament. Paul had a lot of regrets, but notice what he said in our scripture
for today, "forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are
before". He couldn't change his past, and God had forgiven him of it so he chose to leave it behind and
focus on the future.
We all have things in our past that we regret, but when we turn to Christ and place our faith in Him,
He removes those things as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). No matter what or how
much we have done, they are gone! He will never use them against us! What an incredible GOD! As
Christians let's say like the Apostle Paul, I can't change my past, so I'm going to let it go and focus on
what I can do for God with the rest of my life. That's His desire for us.
