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 Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
There are two days that can steal your joy and rob you of the fulfillment God has for you today: One is tomorrow; the other is yesterday. Both are days we Christians should refuse to live in.
So many of us have never learned how to separate ourselves from yesterday. We are still dragging it around with us and it is stealing our joy. Paul could have lived there in the realm of guilt, but he refused.
Maybe you, like Paul and countless others, have committed some horrible sins. But friend, what God has called cleaned, let no man call unclean. If you have sinned and given it to God, it is buried in the depths. Don’t let it contaminate your day. Learn to live in the present.
