"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
2 Corinthians 5:17
Well, what is one thing that holds me and many other people back from being the incredible people God has called us to be? The past, that's what!! Everyone is held back by it I think. That is until you get set free from it! 2 Corinthians 5:17 says that we are a NEW creation when we accept Jesus Christ into our lives. God tells us in His Word that He has already forgotten all our sin once we ask for forgiveness, so why is it so hard for us to do the same whether it be for ourselves or with someone else? Probably one of the most misunderstood things in the world is being a "new creation." because the world will always bring up the past even when it has been forgiven. God doesn't want us holding on to our past. And He doesn't want us holding on to each others pasts either. Paul didn't hold on to his past because he knew that in Christ he was completely forgiven and didn't need to hold on to something that was already forgotten! So I pray today that you don't hold onto the past sins because you are forgiven! I pray you find the new creation God has made you and find the new potential He gives along with it! I leave you with a question, will you let your past make you a villain or victor?
love ya'll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! God Bless~
