God Makes All Things New

Galatians 5:19-26 (NIV)

19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

*Sometimes, we allow our past to depict our future. We may even allow people to hold things over our head that we use to do, say, or believe. However, once you determine that you would like to be saved and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you can start over with a clean slate. No one should be inquiring about your past unless they are helping your get over it or through something that has a hold on you. If God can forget and forgive, humans do not have the right to try to dig and pry about something you let go. However, be aware of things that still hinder you or that you need to put down. Once we become new creatures in Christ, we should not habitually take part in things of the flesh. These habits should begin the process of being removed until they are nonexistent. Let's pray that we let go, refocus, and revamp in order to keep growing and moving forward...
