Paul, in contrast, forgot the past and pressed on toward the prize (Philippians:3:13,13) which is promised to all those who love Christ’s appearing (2 Timothy:4:7,8). The past is of little consequence if Christians truly are new creations in Christ, for whom “old things are passed away [and] all things are become new” (2 Corinthians:5:17). Though searching the past in order to find an “explanation” for one’s present behavior may seem to help for a time, it introduces uncertainty (“have I uncovered it all?”) and robs one of the biblical solution through Christ. What matters is not the past but one’s personal relationship to Christ right now.
