As I read a recent posting from Word of Life World Outreach about the Gospel being about your future, it triggered a thought that many believers are still living their born-again lives from their past. They feel guilty and ashamed for past deeds even though they’ve made Jesus their Lord and Saviour.
You can’t live your life from or in the past. The past is gone, behind you, never more to return. Your future is today, tomorrow, and forever. When you ground it in the Gospel of God’s grace, it frees your thoughts and emotions. You’re not tied to the past failures any longer.
Hebrews 8:12 (NLT) promises “And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.” Live from the truth of what you now have in Jesus, and you’ll live from the inside out, closing the door on your past.
