Welcome to our website

What Do You Do with Your Past?

When you look back over your life, what do you see? Do you see things of joy and satisfaction? Or do you see things which brings distress, heartbreak, and shame to your heart? Are we really prepared to make a true assessment, of the past 20 years? the past 10 years? the past year?

There’s one truth that we can lay down for all the years. The past is GONE! There is absolutely nothing that we can do about it. We CANNOTchange one event or one experience in any way, shape or fashion. Wrong is wrong! From the moment we do it, it is wrong! But it is the past! The apostle Paul said that there IS something a Christian can do about the past, something that he did.

Philip. 3:13-14 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, [14] I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. [KJV] What "one thing" did he do? He FORGOT the past! "This one thing I do." HOW can we forget the past??? We cannot, without help from our Lord. But it is possible! Did Paul have anything ‘bad or evil’ in his past that he would want to forget? Yes! See: Acts 7:58; 8:1,3; 9:1-2; 22:4.

God did give us memories, and there are certain things we should remember. So, just what should we remember? "Remember!" He said to the children of Israel, when He brought them out of the land of bondage.

Exodus 13:3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the Lord brought you out from this place:- - -[KJV] They were to remember and never forget it. When you go through the Bible, you will find that the word remember is usually associated with God and the word forget is associated with man. God remembers much better than we do. We find in Genesis that God remembered Noah. We find man is always forgetting the good things that God does for us.

Psalm 106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt; [KJV] So, so tragic! We should NEVER forget God! But Israel did, and so do we! We forget things we should remember, and remember things we should forget.

The Bible tells us that to forget certain things is sin. All the way through the Bible He says to us, "Remember."

Eccles.12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth ". Even after you leave this life, you will still remember, and you’ll remember for eternity. In Luke 16:25, Abraham in Sheol said to the rich man who was in torment, "Remember." All those who reject Christ, will take the memory of refusing Him and His salvation into eternity. My friend, with a memory like this, you wouldn’t need much fire to make it a Hell!

MEMORIES YOU WILL HAVE

If you choose the broad road that leads to Hell,
That place of judgment, where all evil dwells.
You will have memories, for ever more,
The Bible does tell what is held in store.

Today most folk don’t study the Good Book,
They’d see for themselves, if they’d just look!
ALL who reject Christ, will end up in Hell,
And in that awful place, for e’er they’ll dwell!

Those who are there, wish they had one more try,
They look back; and for loved ones do cry.
Rejection of Jesus, they see in remorse,
If they had one more chance, they’d change their course!

The anger, pain, misery, and the thirst,
All the suffering; their minds near do burst.
Such a clear memory, of when on Earth,
But they rejected Christ, and all His worth!

If you were to ask any one of those,
There in dark Hell, where God’s judgment flows,
“Is there any thing I can do for you?”
They’d say: “Yes, tell others what Christ can do.”

Scripture verses for above poem:

What Should We Forget?

I will bring up several things that we should forget.

The first thing is STUPID MISTAKES or BLUNDERS. These we should forget. In "forgetting the things which are behind," we are to forget our blunders. Sometimes we do damage that we did not mean to do. Is there something you wish you had not said? For me, yes! I wish I had bitten off my tongue. Or, did you do something you had no intention of doing? For me, yes! I’m sorry immediately, but I did it. I would not have done it intentionally for anything in the world.

The second thing is SENSITIVITY. Or being overly sensitive. Our society reeks of rivalries, competition, alienations and personality conflicts. Somebody is going to offend you, and you are going to be hurt. Or you will hurt someone. You will be wounded in life’s struggle. What should you do? Do you nurse grudges and hurts? Do you carry ill feelings and spread confusion and commotion? What should you do? Forget them! "Forgetting those things which are behind." You cannot have the peace and comfort of God unless you do!

A third thing that we must forget: our SUCCESSES. Success is the most difficult of all to forget. It is something you don’t want to forget! It’s human to want to remember and bask in the good feeling. Paul said: Philippians 4:11,12 I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound …". To abound and to be successful, is really the most difficult to forget.

In America we measure a man by how much money has he made. Has he been a success in business? We measure a man by the schools where he was educated, by his job, and by his power. These values are wrong according to God. Many are successful in business, but are failures at home. Many people have a famous name but is a failure in marriage. If you have made money this past year, if you have attained the position you wanted, may I suggest this as a friend: FORGET IT! It will do nothing but harm you (pride) by remembering how good you are. You need to humble yourself before Almighty God and "Forgetting those things which are behind." It will do us good to forget our successes.

The fourth thing we are forget is our SORROWS. Perhaps you have lost a loved one recently. Maybe tragedy came your way and sorrow fills your heart. My friend, I do not mean to sound pessimistic, but if sorrow has not come, it WILL come. Death is no respecter of persons. It comes to the palace of a pharaoh and the hut of a peasant. It pays no attention to the status of the individual. It comes to all. If tragedy did come to you and sorrow did fill your heart, may I say to you kindly: forget it. I don’t mean to forget your loved one. I mean to forget your sorrow. Many ask: "Why did God let this happen to me?" My friend, God lets it happen to His children for a reason.

2 Cor. 1:3-4 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; [4] Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. [KJV] God will let you go down through the dark valleys, so that He might reach out and comfort you. Friends or family cannot truly comfort you. Any time you are truly comforted, it is God who did it. He is the "God of all comfort." He alone can comfort you, and He comforts you so that when you see someone else in the same trouble as you, His Word can bring comfort to them through you.

When King David’s little son died (2 Samuel 12), David arose and washed his face, changed his clothes and went to the house of the Lord and worshipped, then he went home and ate. His servants were baffled. They asked him, "Why is it that when the little one was still alive you fasted and wept, but now that the child is dead you no longer mourn?" David answered, "He is dead, why should I fast? I can’t bring him back again." What David was saying was: "I’ll forget the things that are behind, and I’ll move forward to things that are ahead." He forgot his sorrows.

The fifth thing we must forget is our SINS. What do you do with your sins? The Word of God says to confess them. Confess them promptly to God, and then forget them. We are to correct what we have done when we injure someone. But after we have dealt with it and confessed it, we are to forget it! "Forgetting those things which are behind." Confess to God privately, not publicly, and when you do that, forget the sin, because God has.

If your sins are not forgiven, or maybe you are not sure they are forgiven, you can wipe out the past, with all of its sins and stains. Would you like to KNOW that all your horrible sins are forgiven? Would you like to get out from under that heavy burden? Matthew 11:28-30 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. [29] Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. [30] For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. [KJV] Only Jesus can give us rest from lugging around our heavy burdens. Only Jesus can give us rest for our souls.

God will not only forgive you your sins, but He will also forget them. God says:

Jeremiah 31:34 - - - for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. [KJV]

Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. [KJV] God puts our sins behind Him and He won’t turn around to retrieve them. He forgets them.

Micah 7:18-19 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. [19] He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. [KJV] There is NO other God like Him. He pardons the sins of His people? He will not stay angry with us forever. He delights in showing mercy to us. He has compassion on us. He will trample our sins under His feet and throw them into the deepest part of the ocean!

Hebrews 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. [KJV] He will forgive our wrongdoings, and He will never remember our sins again.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. [KJV] We must first admit to ourselves that we have sinned. We must admit that God is right and we are wrong. For if we say we don’t have any sin, we fool only ourselves and refuse to accept the truth. But, when we confess our sins to God, He is faithful and just and will forgive us and cleanse us from every wrong. Our slate is wiped clean because of our faith in Jesus! PRAISE GOD!
