We are a new creation, the old things that we once loved and worshiped have passed away.
All things have become new. The old man is dead and we are now made alive in Christ.
It is not by our righteousness that justifies and reconciles us to God the Father. It is His righteousness that was imputed onto all those who believe by faith.
Abraham was declared righteous before God, not by his work, but because of his faith in the Creator of all things.
We as true believers have already received eternal life because of our faith in Jesus and His finished work on the cross. He has done it all.
I am thankful to know Jesus, my Lord and Savior. Thanks to Him, I am forgiven of my sins, past, present and future.
His blood did not just cover my sins as the animal sacrifices did under the law in the old covenant, He nailed them to the cross once and for all.
God has forgotten our sins as far as the East is from the West and He will remember then no more.
Don’t let Satan remind you of your past. Remind him of his future.
“But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.” Phl 3: 7-11.
