” Brothers, 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..” – Philippians 3:13
Do you ever wish you could turn back time and erase past mistakes?
I think we all do. When I look back during the time I was living apart from God, I did some things that still sting me with shame and regret. Satan tries to convince me that I am still that person.
But, guess what? I am not the same person. I am a child of God! In my Father’s eyes, I am forgiven; my mistakes have been erased!
I repented and turned back to Jesus. Those feelings of condemnation and guilt are just lies, attacks from Satan. I am forgiven! My focus and goal is to grow deeper in Jesus and hope others see Him through my life.
When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we are freed from the mistakes of our past. We must put our faith in Him, realize we are forgiven and live for Him!
Life is so much better with Jesus! And the rewards are eternal! Please do not live in misery and condemnation. Accept Jesus’ gift of salvation.
He died for you. Will you live for Him?
