Forward-Monday Motivation

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17 esv

Your past is over in Christ! Stop letting old stuff weigh you down today. Yesterday I heard an awesome sermon at my church, The Tabernacle. Preaching from the story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15), my pastor  shed some light of the part of the story when the son came home. After he came to himself and headed home the father saw him afar off. The father ran to him, embraced him, and kissed his son (verse 20). The father didn't hold any of the son's offenses against him. He was simply glad his son returned home.

Our Father, God, doesn't care about our past. Be honest with yourself. At one time or another you drifted away from Jesus. You wanted to do your own thing so you did it. You may be in that state right now. Whatever it was, whatever you did, just let it go. God has. He is not angry with you. He just wants to love on you like no one else can.  In Christ you are free from your past! When you come to yourself don't be ashamed. God just wants you to come home. Let Christ make your 2014 the best year of your life.
