And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins." 
Hebrews 8:12

Sometimes our mind will not forget what other people have done, or what they were like in the past.  Sometimes our mind will not forget what we ourselves have done or were like.  Have you ever found yourself looking at a person and thinking of the past?  Looking at yourself, remembering, wishing you could change things?

Man looks at the past but God says “ I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”   God is not looking at our past and He is not keeping record of our sins at all!

We are NEW creations!  “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”  2 Corinthians 5:17
The old us died.  When I think of it that way, it helps me to “picture” things different.  When you find yourself remembering, say no!  That person (whether it’s you or someone else) is dead!  There is a brand new person in their place!

We do sin from time to time, but they have already been dealt with on the cross 2,000 years ago.  They have been washed away by the blood of Jesus.   So forget the past and live the righteous life that is yours through Jesus Christ.

Many Blessings,
