Forgetting What is Behind (Philippians 3)

About

Sometimes, forgetfulness is a blessing, not a curse. Especially when it comes to forgetting the bad things or the old self. And that’s what this song is all about…

Lyrics

Not that I’ve already obtained all of this
Or that I’ve already been made perfect,
But I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me,
He took hold of me

Brothers, I do not consider myself to
Have taken hold of it yet, but one thing I do:
I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me,
He took hold of me…

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what’s ahead
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God’s called me heavenward in Christ,
Called me heavenward in Christ
He has called me heavenward in Christ
