Boston sang “Don’t look back” on WLS in Chicago late in the summer of 1978. (I was glued to my AM radio back then) WLS was about all I listened too. How can you beat Larry Lujack? Long before Boston sang “Don’t look back” there was the Apostle Paul was telling Believers, in so many words, ”Don’t look back!” Paul writes in his letter to the Philippians, ”Brethren, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the upward call of YeHoVaH/God in Yeshua/Jesus.” His word to us is, ”Don’t look back!” Like the Apostle Paul we must forget ”what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead.” There is a natural, human tendency for us to look back. And there can be great value in looking back. We look back to learn. We look back to affirm the places and faces and circumstances from whence we have come. Facebook friends, ”It’s mainly for some clue to where I am going that I search through where I’ve been, for some hint as to whom I am becoming or failing to become that I delve into what used to be.” So there is, indeed, a time for us to look back, if that looking back carries with it a positive purpose. At the same time Paul tells us to ”forget what lies behind.” But Paul is saying don’t look back in a way that will keep us from going forward. Don’t look back in a way that makes us prisoners of our past, because looking back in the wrong way enslaves us or enslaves others to past mistakes and sins. Looking back in the wrong way does not allow the healing of old hurts and painful memories. Even looking back at past accomplishments and successes can keep us from discovering what lies ahead. So the advice that’s given to us is, ”Don’t look back!” Imagine how miserable the Apostle Paul would have been if he had not put behind the sins and mistakes of his past. Think back on Paul’s earlier years.
Before his conversion Paul was named Saul, and he was the number one enemy of the church. He was responsible for the gruesome persecution and even the murder of people who professed faith in Yeshua/Jesus. When Stephen, the great witness for Yeshua/Jesus, was stoned to death, Luke tells us that ”Saul was consenting to his death.” In Acts, Luke goes on to say ”that a great persecution arose against the church” and ”Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison.” Paul’s past was cluttered with atrocious acts of evil. And he wasn’t perfect after he became a Believer. He, like us, continually struggled with his sinfulness. Yet he was forgiven. Through the grace of YeHoVaH/God Paul was forgiven. He affirmed in his letter to the Colossians, ”He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Paul was able to forget the awfulness of his past because YeHoVaH/God had forgotten and forgiven Paul’s past. In Hebrews Yeshua/Jesus tells us that He will ”remember our sins and misdeeds no more.” There’s no reason for us to remain enslaved to the mistakes and sins and shortcomings of our past. We don’t have to continually feel guilty and ”second rate” because of something we did years ago or even yesterday. YeHoVaH/God in Yeshua/Jesus has forgiven us, and all we do is accept His forgiveness and say ”thank you.” It’s as simple as that. Don’t look back at past mistakes! Amen?
“Dr. Feelgood” is a song by the American heavy metal band Mötley Crüe. It was released in 1989 as the lead single from their fifth studio album of the same name. “Dr. Feelgood” is Mötley Crüe’s only Gold single in the U.S. In 2009, it was ranked the 15th greatest hard rock song of all time by VH1.
“Let him soothe your soul, just take his hand
Some people call him an evil man
Let him introduce himself real good
He’s the only one they call “Feelgood”
Here is a song about a drug dealer peddling his wares to all who will seek him out. It’s a song about a person who peddles in other peoples misery. Jimmy in the song could be anyone. He may be someone in particular, but he may just be generic to all drug dealers, as they all work to the same ends. The line “Let him soothe your soul, just take his hand” What exactly is soul soothing? For the weary and burdened, soul soothing is when you get rest, not just from work but a shelter from life. Soothed in heart as well as body. For many this is what is achieved on a spa weekend where they get pampered up to the nines. We are all looking for it in one way or another. For the man or woman suffering from depression “Soul Soothing” is but a dream that has not been realised. For the man or woman that needs companionship and some one to listen “Soul Soothing” will be just that. For the overworked mother or father bringing up a family “Soul Soothing” may be time to themselves so that they can chill and unwind. Yeshua/Jesus in his day recognised the stresses and strains upon the people He lived amongst. He recognised the oppression that the people of Israel were under and He offered something precious in Matthew 11. One of the my favorite passages in the New Testament is Matthew 11:28-30. In it the Yeshua/Jesus summarizes the invitation to discipleship that characterised His earthly ministry. In this passage He was addressing the people of Israel who were burdened and weighed down with the externalism and the legal do’s and donts of the Pharisees, and with the consequences, the guilt, frustration, and dissatisfaction that always goes along with takkanot . It is in the midst of this setting that the He makes a very gracious invitation to all who would want to experience the relief, joy, and the blessings of His life through a relationship with Him. This is an invitation aimed at all, at the curious and at the convinced to bring them to a place of a deeper level of commitment in which they are to take His yoke and learn from Him as committed disciples! Amen? “Soul Soothing” is offered in this wonderful passage from Matthew 11. Yeshua/Jesus offers a rest and a “soul soothing” that means us being partners with him in life. We may still face much of what would have faced alone but we now face it in relationship with Him. “Rest for your Souls” might at time be so far away from your grasp but it is a offer that many including myself have found the value in it. Mötley Crüe sang about drugs in the 1980’s and even Nikki Sixx in time would see that they were not to be trusted for “Soul Soothing”. Facebook friends, my prayer for you this week would be that if you are weighed down with the burdens of life, you may encounter the invitation of Yeshua/Jesus, not in a dry and dusty book but, that those WORDS in that dusty Bible on your shelf would come alive to you in a wonderful way and that you would experience all that He has to offer in them. Amen? https://youtu.be/izjvvUrknRY
Child of God, if you feel you’re at the end of your rope, ask The Lord to tie a knot. If you’re torn apart and overflowing with tears, look in the mirror. You’re alive and still here. God saw you through countless other nights that you despised. God is ALL you need. GOD has to be ALL you need.
NOBODY ELSE can save you! NOBODY else WILL save you! NOBODY CAN complete you.
Like Brother Marcus Rogers is preaching, your mate should compliment you.
Nobody and nothing else can have that Sacred place in your heart. That’s for God. There’s places for others, but He is our TRUE and ONLY Rock and our first Love! The Son Of God is our Everything!
Revelation 2:4 “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.”
Hold onto The Lord tonight and every night.
He’s the only one that will ALWAYS be there.
He said He’d never leave us nor forsake us. He means it.
Jesus/Yeshua is The only MAN (The God Man) that will Forever catch EVERY tear you EVER cry.
Don’t set your affections on the things of this world. We’re not here to stay anyways.
No matter how heavy your pain or even how dark the night, it’s temporary!
These light afflictions cannot compare to the glory that awaits us! Heaven is our Home!
Don’t look at what is seen! Be faith-driven, not fear driven. The Righteous are as bold as a lion.
Tonight He’s enough.
In every trial, Jesus/Yeshua is IT for us ❤️
Not just because He has to be or He should be.
He’s enough because we love Him.
He’s enough because He’s proven Himself Faithful and True! He holds the keys to death, Hell, and the grave and because of HIM and what He did for you, there is ABSOLUTE, Complete FREEDOM!
Nobody can love you like The Son Of God.
Hold onto Him.
He’s holding onto you.
He’s holding onto all of us far more than we’ll ever know this side of Heaven.
Amen. Rest well in The Lord, Precious Ones.
