I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.
Paul had a goal in mind, to take hold of that which Christ Jesus took hold of him. To try and attain that goal he forgot the past and pressed on to that which was ahead. Don’t dwell on the past and don’t let it hold you back with sorrow and regret. The past has been forgiven through Christ and he wants you to move on.
