When you have been going in the wrong direction, all it takes is a U-turn and you are heading for the place you need to go to. Why is it then that so many of us keep looking in the rearview mirror, looking at the past and the wrong things in our past, as a compass for our future? It is not a coincidence that the front screen in our car is much larger than the rearview mirror. It is because it shows you the way to go! So we need to leave the past, and all that we were in the past, behind. And focus on what we are now…
1 Corinthians 6:11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
Do not think about what you were. Think about what you are. Washed (that is clean), sanctified (that is healed and made whole), justified (that is, in right standing with God).
Get the new Spirit life flowing through your veins.
