There is an underlying sense of dissatisfaction with his past as he presses ahead like a runner striving to reach the goal. Paul’s goal was to know Christ intimately, to be like Christ personally, to be all that Christ wanted him to be practically. He had a single mind toward this goal. As far as we are concerned, the past has passed and let us leave it there. Looking back may only discourage us and make us ashamed of what we did or did not do. We need to concentrate on the present and our present and personal relationship with God, not the past and our guilt. Faith and obedience now lead to a full and abundant life. Devotion to Christ instead of dissatisfaction will keep us going in the right direction.
