Too many times we look back at our past mistakes, failures, and sins, which, in turn, causes us to be held captive by our past. We must focus on who we are in Christ and the journey that He has put on while working to become who we know that we need to be. Self improvement is viewed as a bad thing in some Christian circles, but there is nothing wrong with casting off our yesterday and desiring to be more Christ like while fighting to walk the narrow road. Don’t let others who don’t have the strength or faith in the life changing power of the Lord Jesus Christ hold you back. They want to do so because it is true, misery does love company. Look to Christ continually because in Him you will find the strength to not only walk the narrow road, but to run it with purpose and courage while being everyday rugged.
