We are forgiven because of His grace and mercy. And, we no longer have to make some sort of sacrifice, because Christ made the ultimate sacrifice, His life, for our sins.
|Looking back - traps you!|
God says in Phil 3 v 13(b): ...But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.
The devil wants us to look back, to trap us in the past, because then he has a hold on us and we look backwards instead of UPWARDS.
Let us rather do as the Lord has done and leave the past in the past. Learn from it, yes, but don't dwell on it. If you genuinely repented, God has forgiven! Let us not do what the devil would have us do, focus on the past so we miss God's blessings in the present.
