Created to be an Ambassador: Day 3

Week 8 - Created to be an Ambassador

       Day 3: Never Going Back

We all have a past. For some of us, our past is full of poor decisions. For others, our past is full of the poor decisions and actions of others that have caused significant hurts in our lives. 

Despite what may have happened in your past, it is important to remember that it happened in-the-past. There’s no need to try to numb it by overworking. There’s no reason to think that what others have said about you can define who you are. There’s no reason to think that buying a bunch of cool stuff will lead you to forget about it. It happened, but for all who have trusted in Christ, that burden has already been removed and you can now live in freedom.

On an album by United Pursuit, they sing a lyric that is a wonderful reminder about this burden having been removed. They sing:

There’s nothing that I have need of
‘Cause there’s nothing You haven’t done
You make my soul alive
You put Your love inside

As you read today, consider this: What are some things you often do to try to feel alive? Does it work? 

READING:

     PHILIPPIANS 3:13-14

As you read today, consider this: What are some things you often do to try to feel alive? Does it work? 

Why do you think we often do things that don’t lead to feeling truly alive?

Read the first line of the song lyric in today’s reading one more time. How true is this statement in your own life? What steps can you be taking so that this can be regular mindset for you?

Reflect: What did you H.E.A.R. from God today? HEAR Bible Study Method

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, I confess that many, many times I try to define myself in my work, or by what others say about me, or by the false belief that what I own will help me forget about the past. I’m grateful for the reminder that there’s really nothing – outside of You – I have need of. You have provided me with more than I could ever earn on my own. Today, I will truly rejoice that I am never going back! I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
