Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Sunday Morning, May 26th, 2019 - Getting Past the Past - Pastor Jared Shumate
We all have our fair share of baggage from our past. Maybe it's a prior relationship, a former job, or reminders of how you lived your life before you were saved. Regardless of what it is, we all have some. And Satan likes to use it as a tool against us. He likes to remind us of our past, what we used to be, and use it to drag us down.
But you have to overcome that baggage. It's time to put it aside and leave it behind! Easier said than done, right?
Pastor Jared shows us how we have to "walk" before we can do that.

12Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13Brethren, 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, 14I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. 15Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. 16Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. 17Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. 18(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. (KJV)
