Romans 8:1-.There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
Condemnation- katakrima in the greek. Penalty, punishment following condemnation
The past is the past, therefore, refuse to live there.
The slate has been wiped clean by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, therefore you have no need to worry about the past, no need to keep looking back at it or feel condemned by it. YOU ARE FORGIVEN OF IT!
Now that you and I are saved by faith through grace, condemnation, judgment and punishment for sins that was upon us before Christ is no longer the lot for those of us who NOW follow Jesus Christ. Those who walk according to the spirit and not according to the flesh.
Don't let your past or your accusers rob you of a bright future. Remember, your past is forgiven and you have been made you who you are today from your past. TELL GOD THANK YOU!
Do not live looking back at your past. If you have been saved through Christ, you are no longer in bondage to your sin.
I believe we should, from time to time remind ourselves of where we were to remind us of what God has done for us, and so that we won't repeat our past, but do not live there nor allow your past to rob you of your freedom now in Christ Jesus. Continue to look unto Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith.
Christ has set us free from sin through His Spirit. We are no longer condemned to a life of servitude to sin. Continue to walk in freedom with Christ who died and paid the price for us to be free.
The Apostle Paul says this concerning those who have set free by Christ and are no longer condemned by sin. 2 Corinthians 5:17-Therefore, if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away. Look, all things have become new.
Our past is just that, our past. Leaving it behind does not mean that we would totally forget our past and never think on them. No, our past is our testimony.
The good news about our past is that we have been set free from it.
To those of you who are still living in bondage to willful sin, the opportunity to be free from condemnation is available to you too by faith through Christ Jesus.
People of God, rejoice on today for what the Lord has done for us in offering up His Son, Jesus Christ as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins.
Don't judge me by my past because I do not live there anymore!
Because of Christ forgiveness and redemption, there is no more condemnation. REJOICE PEOPLE OF GOD!
No more guilt and no more shame. The weight of our sins is no longer ours for Christ paid our debt in full.
My past was my temporary residence that was used to build my character, strength and faith in God. I no longer live there, but have taken up residence in Christ Jesus where He declares that "I am no longer condemn" and because of Him, I now live in freedom with Him.
My past is not who I am!
NO LONGER CONDEMN! Our past is just that, "our past."
THANK YOU LORD FOR SAVING ME FROM MY PAST!
