Pits to Purpose – Don’t Look Back!

Pits to Purpose – Jett Life Ministries
I am a former Sprint Car driver and I would often say; “Real race cars don’t have mirrors!” Because NASCAR and other forms of auto racing did/do have mirrors! This makes for a great illustration to make a biblical point on how God wants us to live life. If you have ever entered that “Narrow” gate that leads to life (Faith in Jesus Christ), then don’t look back or go back out of it and re-enter the “Wide” gate (The world). Do you know why you shouldn’t do that? Because God says that gate leads to destruction!
Matthew 7:13-14 says; “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
As a new sprint car driver, I was tempted to look behind me to see if someone was coming. My focus was divided (Backward & forward). That can lead to squirreliness and crashing. I quickly learned to focus on the track and racers in front of me and let the ones behind me worry about catching and passing me!
As a Christian, we too should be focused on Jesus and His ways and will for us daily. You will be “In” Jesus, “In” the life gate and “In” His presence, protection, provision and other blessings! If we do that, then there is no time to look back or desire the things that used to trip us up or even sent us to the pits of life!
Jett Fuel Extra Credit: Lot’s wife looked back and so did Demas. Read about them in Genesis 19:1-29 & 2 Timothy 4:10.
Quit looking back!
