Breaking up with your past

09/06/2024 - Matthew Destry

The elephant

The goldfish

Philippians 3:1-14


a/ ‘Finally’

b/ Watch out for the dogs

c/ Paul’s pedigree


1/ If you’re going to look back, look back at what God has done

2/ If you’re going to look ahead, look forward to new things

3/ If you feel like letting go, know that Christ is holding you



1/ Is there anything in your life that you will sometimes trust in other than Christ (good behaviour, church attendance, Christian background, anything else)?

2/ Are there any negative past experiences that are currently holding you back from living a full life for Jesus now?

3/ How could a big, bright and beautiful vision for the future influence your living today?
