Philippians 3:14 esv
Keep pressing forward. No matter what has occurred in your life you must keep going. We all have failures. We all have made mistakes, but that is no reason to give up. The road to success to success is laden with ups and downs. In a post Super Bowl interview Peyton Manning “It’s not embarrassing at all. I would never use that word…The word ‘embarrassing’ is insulting to tell you the truth.” There’s a difference between accepting your mistakes and feeling ashamed. There’s a difference between realizing your mistakes and living in them.
Paul said that his desire was to know Christ and the power of His resurrection (v. 10). Although he knew Christ he had a passion to know Him more. That should be the goal of every Christian; to know Christ more. Keep your eye on the future. There is more from Christ. Don’t get caught up in mistakes. Don’t be embarrassed and shameful. Look to Jesus. See yourself becoming more and more like Him. Keep pressing forward.
