Welcome to
September 2017
 Letting Go of the Past
As we enter the month of September, I want to remind you of a powerful truth concerning letting go of the past. So many are struggling with memories of their past mistakes and experiences. This struggle keeps them from embracing God's amazing plan for the future. The ability to face the past and filter it all through God's rich mercy and grace is a vital key for your future progress and growth.

Forgetting Means Letting Go of Regrets
We cannot change the past, but we can change the future for good. Philippians 3:13-14 declares, "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, reaching forth to those things that are before. I press toward the mark of the high calling in Christ Jesus." The Lovett's Translation tells us, "Please don't think that I have earned such an exaltation already. Indeed not, for that would mean I have reached a perfection beyond which no further progress is possible. But I yearn to reach for it, for Christ has shown me how far a man can go." The Barclay Translation declares, "Brothers, I do not regard myself as having already grasped the prize. But I have one aim in life-to forget what lies behind, and strain every nerve to reach for what lies ahead." There comes a point where you make a quality decision to say, "That was the, this in now. I am forgiven and will become a better person by the grace of God. I will only reach for all God has for me."

Forgetting Your Past and Fulfilling Your Calling
Putting the past behind you helps create a new focus of new possibilities in Christ. Philippians 3:14, the Johnson Translation declares, "I turn my back on the past and focus on my one clear objective, the fulfilling of my calling by God through Christ." It is virtually impossible to carry out God's amazing assignment for your life while entertaining condemnation concerning the past. Before true spiritual progress can be made, a complete turning of ones back to the past is necessary. God is calling you to fulfill greater things for His name sake. here must be a clear objective, fulfilling His calling. Richard Parker once said, "God doesn't call people who are qualified. he calls people who are willing, and then He qualifies them." Deitrich Bonhoeffer once said, "The responsible person seeks to make his or her life a response to the question and the call of God." Responsibility to God means being responsible to our God assignment. If we allow the past ot hinder us from fulfilling His calling, we have failed to embrace the grace of god, and are stuck in the trap of condemnation.

Change the Future Through God's Rich Forgiveness
Determine to embrace God's rich forgiveness for yourself and release it toward others. In Luke 6:37 Jesus said, "Forgive and you shall be forgiven." Bernard Meltzer once said, "When you forgive, you in no way change the past-but you sure do change the future." Future progress always has forgiveness in the equation. One unknown author once said, "The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness." Proverbs 17:9 declares, "He who covers over an offense promotes love." Mahatma Gandhi said, "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." Little men and women cannot forgive. Determine to let go of your past and let others go free of their past. The best awaits us all in Christ.

Thank you for your love in Christ.
We believe in and appreciate you greatly.
