Have you ever noticed that as you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, your past has its way to remind you of your ugly ol’ self? It seems like every time you take a step forward in faith, you get bombarded by negative thoughts or people trying to remind you of who you used to be; trying to make you feel guilty, condemned or like a hypocrite.
Your past is just that…your past. It does not define who you are now in Christ. You are a new creation and the old has been released (2 Cor. 5:17). So, let go of your past and let God continue working within you; creating the beautiful person you are meant to be. For who He sets FREE is FREE INDEED! (John 8:36)
Jesus was the only person, who walked on this earth, that was perfect. We all fall short of God’s glory. (Romans 3:23) However, through Jesus, our future is very different. He already paid for every one of our sins (past, present and future). So, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior; you were washed as white as snow, your sins were forgiven and God no longer remembers them. (Romans 8:1-39)
