Leave your Past
Your Past Does NOT Disqualify You
1 Corinthians 7:20-24
20 Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called. 21 Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it. 22 For he who is called in the Lord while a slave is the Lord’s freedman. Likewise he who is called while free is Christ’s slave. 23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. 24 Brethren, let each one remain with God in that state in which he was called.
“Today you will be with Me in Paradise.” – Luke 23:43. The Lord erased his past because of his faith in Jesus that secured his future.
No matter how hard we strive to do things without Him, Jesus is always right behind us, waiting with open arms. Your past is nothing but; it is past. It is gone.
God Will Take the Bad in the Past and use it for Future Good
Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
TO LOVE GOD AND LOVE OUR NEIGHBORS TAKE PRESENT ACTION
1 John 2:1-2
My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.
